At least 54 million Americans are over 65.  How can this population, which I am a part of, use our experience to be in service to each other and the younger generations?  Sage-ing International answers this question with the motto "Wisdom and Spirit in Action." I had the privilege of facilitating "The Olive Singing Tree of Evolving Elders" for their inspiring summit on Oct. 29-31st.  The theme of the conference was "Growing From I to We" and included keynote speakers Michael Meade, Clyde Ford and Amikaeyla Gaston.

Singing Tree Facilitator's Co-Heart #3 Design - The Cypress Willow Singing Tree of Growing Through What We're Going Through.
This is the message of Co-Heart 3 to the world:  "In these tumultuous times, we grow through our grief and uncertainty into a song of renewed togetherness, co-creating a world that works for all."
The young people in Bosnia, whose families had lived through terrible civil war, inspired the concept of “renewed togetherness” in their 2014 Singing Tree.  The four different phases of the moon in each
corner represents the experience of “going through” emptiness, growing, being whole and losing.  The elephant with the earth embedded in her body symbolizes our connection to nature. We included 
the baby elephant to remind us of those who will inherit the world we leave.

“It is the year 2020 and the Earth is gripped by heartache. Earth weeps from distress caused by decades of indifference to climate chaos, and now this terrible pandemic. The Universe responds to Earth’s distress and encapsulates the planet in a loving heart to hold the collective anxiety.  Symbolizing wisdom, health and stability, the olive singing tree offers Earth and all it’s inhabitants a shared vision for creating a healthy and sustainable future.”
 
-Leslie Rein (Olive Singing Tree Facilitator)

Olive Singing Tree of Health  is a nature-based collaboratively created mural whose purpose is to address a community problem or heartbreak. This mural focused on the heartbreak caused by Covid and was completed with the contribution of 53 people from across the country, 17 of whom lost loved ones to the virus. It is tangible evidence that collaborative art-making can turn pain into purpose. 
The mural gives homage to the grassroots activism of Marked By Covid, an organization dedicated to establishing a national day of mourning and holding politicians and policy makers accountable for their pasts failures that resulted in the unnecessary death of over 500,000 Americans. 

Many thanks to those of you who’ve supported me and special thanks to Laurie Marshall, founder of the Singing Tree Project, for her mentorship during this remarkable journey. I am grateful.

The Banyan Singing Tree of the Beloved Community, created as the final reflections for the coaching program of George Washington University's Center for Excellence in Public Leadership.  The leaves symbolize the gifts the coaches hope to give with their new skills.  The birds symbolize their dreams for themselves as a coach.  The butterflies symbolize the transformation that occurred in their program.   Such a creative way to wrap up an academic program.
