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.

Created Singing Trees with Mindful Parent groups in Marquette and Munising, Michigan,   The Marquette group chose to honor the White Pine, the Munising group chose to honor the Birch Tree.  Turns out these two species of trees send each other sugar  - the White Pine sends sugar to the Birch in the winter and the Birch sends sugar to the White Pine in the summer.  It's lovely for parents to support each other and to be supported by the Great Start Collaborative!!!

The Littlest Singing Tree I've ever made: The Department of Peace Building Singing Tree (it's a branch) made over two retreats of the Northern California Peace Alliance. The retreat was with 11 people who have dedicated their lives to the creation of the U. S. Department of Peace Building.  We made the Singing Tree Branch of Peace, envisioning that the Department of Peace Building is in existence and adding to a culture of non-violent conflict resolution.

My high school and Geyserville elementary are the only two schools in the district. I collaborated with the kinder class that my son was In at the time. After the mural was painted I brought it with the leaves and birds to the annual Geyserville Fall Colors event and set up a booth where community members contributed.  With the elementary and high school student bird and leaves and the communities we put it together. Shortly after, a few students of mine from my elective class and I went over to the elementary during a gratitude ceremony for the first responders and presented it with the kids at the assembly sharing the origin of your singing tree and our community story and vision for the tree. I’ll send pics.  It was magical. - Amy Wilson
