“To enter a wood is to pass into a different world
in which we ourselves are transformed.”
“The Goddess gradually retreated into the depths of forests or onto mountaintops, where she remains to this day in beliefs and fairy stories. Human alienation from the vital roots of earthly life ensued, the results of which are clear in our contemporary society.
But the cycles never stop turning, and now we find the Goddess reemerging from the forests and mountains, bringing us hope for the future, returning us to our most ancient human roots.”
“If you know wilderness in the way that you know love,
you would be unwilling to let it go.”
~Terry Tempest Williams
