This is a guided encounter with a tree, so it is best that you listen in the company of trees. You will be led through a series of observations, reflections and movements in relation to trees. The encounter lasts just over 20 minutes. So find a spot among trees, turn off the ringer of your device, and when you are ready, swipe to the next screen to begin Trees Are Fags.
