The Cypress Willow Singing Tree of Growing Through What We're Going Through

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.
