The Spirituality Of Trees

This week, we’re broadcasting from the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois, talking about all things trees, from oaks to gingkos. Of course there is plenty of science to cover, but today, we’re also learning about the spirituality of trees in Chinese culture. How can trees help us connect to nature, to ourselves and to the people around us? Joining us to discuss are Worldview food, health and culture contributor Monica Eng and frequent China correspondent Wen Huang.
