The Sacred Yew Institute was established in 2009 to honor the Yew Tree. The Yew is the earthly and sentient expression of the ONE original pre-earthly organism that the earliest cultures referred to as the Tree of Life. The ancient and yet timeless language of the living Yew holds memory and information concerning the pre-earthly origin and spiritual lineage of human beings. The language and lineage of the Yew were carefully guarded and preserved for thousands of years by generations of holy men, mystics and saints known as the Carriers of the Sacred Branch. ( Fry 2012) To experience the Yew through a truly spiritual understanding of its language is 'to be touched by eternity'. (Hageneder 2007) The human being and the Yew tree belong together. The Yew reveals what is hidden in the human. Every living gesture of the Yew implies the presence of a Divinely given human ability to 'touch' an original and 'unborn' condition where Spirit arises to breathe the mystery of life into our 'embryonic' and protoplasmic substance. This represents not only a function of true spiritual Health but also a (Rainbow) bridge to a further human development. The Sacred Yew Institute is committed to the direct teaching of healing and perceptual practices that can engage with the power of this language and lineage to support the emergence of a more spiritually developed and responsible human being who is ready to serve the needs of others in accordance with Divine Will.
