In the forest, if one tree is cut down, the intertwining roots of sister trees are ripped and torn from the soil. The ripped and torn roots resulting from cutting down trees is what I feel in the kolo after hearing women's first person stories. When I have danced the kolo, or when I have used the kolo archetypal energies in my Bosnian trauma treatment, I have witnessed how the kolo is a metaphysical female cultural reforestation with tree rings rippling outward in an undulating feminine rhythm.
