I had been told about a tree on the hill near the castle in the capital of Slovenia, Ljubjliana. My teacher , Marko Pogacnik had identified this tree as connecting with a presence of the pagan spirit “Pan”-the guardian and guide of elemental beings. I thought it would be very interesting to meet this tree and ask permission to have a conversation. My friend and host Ursa took me to the tree and I asked to approach. I was told that first I must meet ( and be veted) by another tree nearby.
