The "tree" is the vertical dimension of aspiration, individual growth, and intellectual and spiritual development. The "hoop" is the circular representation of our relationship with humanity and the earth. Using examples from Native American and other ancient traditions, Chris Hoffman shows readers how to develop both parts of the whole to help people lead a more contented, complete existence.
