The Tree and the Hoop is an image of human wholeness and is derived from Taoist and Native American cultures. The tree symbolizes personal aspiration, development, goals and achievement — in short, personal leadership. In Native American cultures, the hoop represents relationship in all its aspects, including earth, family and community. The hoop of the yin-yang symbol represents being and flowing in “right relationship” with the way of nature. We, at the Center for Nature and Leadership, believe the hoop also symbolizes “right work” — doing the work that is only yours to do for the people and places that you care about most.
