Lesson of the Hawthorn (from “The Wisdom of Trees”)
“The blossoming of the Hawthorn marks the certain end of the dark days of winter and the return of the procreative forces of nature to the fullness of spring.
The beautiful white flowers give cause for celebration of nature’s capacity for renewed life and love, and for the wonders of lovemaking, conception, and childbirth.
For the Celts there was no shame attached to these natural processes.
They were revered and respected as an essential part of life, and as a sacred expression of the human capacity for love.”
