A complex and paradoxical tree, Arbutus plays many healing roles. It helps us come home to ourselves, to retreat, gather courage, and allow a vision to form for the next stage of our lives. Arbutus encourages us to speak with loving conviction by easing the flow of energy between our heart and throat chakras.
