How the Larch Serves Nature - Humans

Larch Serves

How the Larch Tree Serves:

  • Use as fence posts and building material (more durable than most softwoods)
  • Use as flooring for barns - natural rot resistant 
  •  As a pioneer species - that returns after fire
  •  For building of yachts and boats - boat planking
  •  Can become bonsai trees and ornamental trees in gardens when shaped

Metaphoric Meaning: Larch

Larch Metaphoric

The Metaphor Meaning of Larch 

  • Connection - nature and you so you can recover, rest, rejuvenate
  • As a World Tree(Siberia) - serves as a "Ladder to the Skies" 
  • Here "... to nurture our soul until we are ready to see that we are the ones we have been waiting for"

Website support for above: Spiritual meaning of Larch

Some personal thoughts:

  • As a deciduous conifer, I'm reminded of the two ends of a stick ... in that the Larch holds two perspectives - in dynamic balance which suggests a reason for its metaphor meaning as connector
  • It's yearly story on the landscape of moving from green to yellow to without to green is striking when witnessed - a story of transition
  • And, it reminds me of what to let go (fall and winter) and what to keep (spring and fall) ... the necessary cycle of cleaning the story of my mind in support of my soul and spirit, and my contribution-connection with the wholverse (whole verse rather than uni verse)

Client Testimonial 1:

1 to 1 Facilitative Mentoring
Dr. Stephen Hobbs has helped me to articulate my business vision in much greater detail than I was able to initially explain. His attention to the meaning behind words is profound, as he is able to create a deep richness through making subtle changes to words and sentence structure. This richness added depth and value to my existing content. Steve told me not what I wanted to hear, but what I needed to hear, in a supportive and encouraging way. Steve taught me how to build a stronger foundation for my course platform, to deeply enrich the quality of the content provided, along with a tangible strategy for how to execute an implementation plan using a mentoring approach. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to increase the value of their existing course content or for anyone starting out and needing a solid structure to base their material on.
