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 Yew has survived virtually unchanged for over 250 million years as the oldest, and yet simultaneously the most youthful and even ‘embryonic’ tree species in Europe. Known as ‘the tree archetype of Europe’, the yew has the ability to change its sex, seemingly at will. The oldest known word for the yew, eya (circa 1750 BCE) means ‘eternity’ or ‘to be touched by eternity.’ It is likely that the ‘eternity’ referred to here is related to ancient practices involving the psychoactive properties of the yew. Michael has directly experienced these properties through working in specific ways with yew bark which produces a consciousness altering alkaloid toxin; what Michael in his yewshamanic work refers to as the ‘alkaloid cloud’ of the yew.
