Becoming Forest

Michael Kearney's Becoming Forest (Opens in a new window) is an allegorical novel spanning three continents, three forests, and three generations about the healing wisdom of trees.

The book has been praised by Mary Robinson, 7th President of Ireland, who said: “Becoming Forest is a bold, imaginative tale that serves as a handbook for psychological and spiritual resilience in the face of imminent climate collapse."

We will explore some of the themes in the book and discuss Michael’s plans for the Becoming Forest project (Opens in a new window).
