The Hoop and the Tree
The Hoop and the Tree ›
By Chris Hoffman

Trade Paper

Published Apr 2021

This is a book for seekers of personal development and planetary healing. Imagine a vertical axis running through the center of your being, from your deepest roots up to your highest aspirations. This is the Tree, which anchors and centers you. Now imagine this Tree encircled by concentric rings of family, friends, all of humanity, and the encompassing beauty of nature. This is the Hoop of relationship. This simple yet life-changing volume fully explains for the first time the power of these two ubiquitous symbols to bring us a whole new understanding of ourselves and our place in the world. Through explorations of their deep meaning in psychology, Native American and other spiritual traditions, myth and fairy tale, author Chris Hoffman shows how we can use the Hoop and the Tree to be happier in our relationships, increase our connection with nature, create a more functional society, and live lives of balance and fulfillment. This twentieth anniversary edition, revised and expanded, offers additional insights into practical applications, describes the initiations needed for a fully lived life, and gives simple exercises for visualizing and integrating one’s own deep structure of wholeness.

We are located in the heart of Chicago, in the city's River North neighborhood.
