Marise: Connects with Oldest Trees


Marise tells the story, “This photo was taken during my visit to Trounson Kauri Park in Northland New Zealand. I am honored to be at the feet of this sacred sentient being. The Kauri Walk which runs through the Waipoua Forest brought me to The Father of the Forest ‘Te Matua Ngahere’ approximately 2500 to 3000 years old. This majestic tree is 51.5 metres it is the largest (by volume) of these ancient kauri trees.”

“I went there many years ago before I was getting specific messages from trees.  But this tree changed everything for me.  I remember being amazed by the feeling of Life Force radiating out towards me.  I could see it glowing.  I felt it so truly beautiful. The Father of the Forest ‘Te Matua Ngahere’ gave me a new perspective on trees: I realized that they are living beings and people can interact with them!”

“Now, I am an energy healer, medicine woman, feng shui and space clearing expert and permaculture garden designer. I like to connect with the oldest trees on a property to receive their messages when performing land blessings and healing ceremonies.”
