The Aspen Season
This is a recording of tree meditations for the Aspen season (August-October approx.). It forms part of a series of soulful Celtic tree meditations. This is the fourth phase, or Autumn phase, of the Celtic Tree calendar. My series of insightful Tree meditations are based on the inner meaning of the Celtic Ogham calendar. In this series I examine the role of soul world of the trees to awaken the human soul. This recording reflects the trees associated with the season, or cycle, of the Aspen tree. Hence the title “Tree meditations for the Aspen season“. In addition, it includes meditations on the path shown by the consonant trees. Listing them, they are the Crabapple, the Mistletoe, and the Ivy. Acting as an “umbrella” tree, the seasonal vowel tree is the Aspen.
Lughnasa is the cross quarterly festival celebrated at this time of year. Then this is followed by the Autumn Equinox which welcomes the waning quarter of the year. This celebrates the balance between light and dark.
Celtic Tree Meditations
All the Celtic Tree meditations include guided imagery, breathing techniques, guidance on the tree essence, my poem on each tree essence, and ends with my summary affirmation.
The purpose of the meditation is to take you on a conscious journey to revisit, renew and upgrade the tree energies understood so well by the indigenous societies in Britain and Ireland. In this way we can honour the trees. These meditations will strengthen your connection with the living world of nature, and strengthen your soul.
You may purchase the appropriate Ogham tree essence to accompany the meditation in order to absorb more fully the vibrations of the season.
You may like to purchase my popular book Tree Murmurs that guides you in a series of poems, together with explanations and diagrams on the complete calendar year. If you order in advance the entire series for €45 I will send you a complimentary copy of this popular guide book (you pay a small fee for carriage only).
