Sacred Work: Forest Mystics

Synergistic Tree Magic


The Forest Mystics, a temple within CAYA Coven dedicated to the Green gods in their many forms, invites all people who hold for a compassionate, just, caring society that honors the Earth to participate in a magical working with us.


For each part of this working, we ask that you find a tree near the intended recipient of your magic. Ask the tree for a gift of some part of itself, such as a leaf, bud, twig, or piece of bark. Take your piece of tree home with you to your altar or other sacred space. Send your energy and intentions into that piece of tree, knowing that the connection to the tree from which it came allows your magic to reach through the parent tree. Do this as often as you feel called to.


For spring, we focus our intentions on children and the elderly. Find a tree near a school, nursing home, senior housing, or any other place that children or seniors gather regularly. We hold for skillful, compassionate support and that children and elders be listened to. You can use this chant, or create one of your own:


Compassionate kindness and skill

Listening ears, all this we will

For all who pass through these halls

May it be so, for the good of all


When you feel complete with this part of our working, return the piece of tree to somewhere it can compost and return to the Earth.


You can mark where you are sending energy to on our interactive map (
