Nature’s Intuitive Healing 1-Day Retreat
July 16, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$150.00
The forest is a magical space that holds many natural and spiritual healing energies within it. During this 1-Day Retreat you will experience the magic in nature for yourself in a physical and spiritual way. We will start the day with a meditation where you will meet your nature spirit guides so they may assist you throughout the day. Then we will dive deep into communicating directly with plants, trees, and animals. You will be introduced to practices and exercises that help you slow down your mind and feel into the messages held within the natural world around you. Learn how to identify foraged medicinal plants, craft your own teas, and work with the spirits of plants to create and honor the natural world around you.

Nature Spirit Guide Meditation
Relax into the mystical powers of nature in this guided meditation practice. During the experience you will connect with nature spirits and meet the nature spirit(s) that you are uniquely connected with.
Guided Nature Connection Walk
You will slow down and be guided to engage with nature in a unique and deeply intuitive way based on the practice of Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing). Through a series of invitations you will experience the depth and healing powers of the forest, while also learning about some of the natural medicines that it creates for us.
Forest Mandala Workshop
Mandalas are a powerful tool to represent and reflect on our experience in the world. In this workshop you will intuitively collect natural items from the forest floor and be guided to create a mandala with those items to represent your inner experience. This will be followed by a meditation with your creation.
Nature’s Intuition Workshop
We will head out to our organic garden to connect and communicate with the plants. Through a series of guided exercises you will slow down and meditate with a variety of plants, learning how to listen to them, and ask them for guidance. You will also have an opportunity to learn more about some of the medicinal plants in your own backyard and taste some edible flowers!
Foraged Tea Bar
Craft your own unique tea blend to taste after collecting fresh items from the garden and intuitively sensing which plants are best suited for your body and mind on this day.
Forest Dreamcatcher Workshop
Create your own handmade dreamcatcher from branches, moss, and other inspiring natural items from the forest. You will be guided through the process to create your own unique piece that can be hung at home or in your garden to protect the energies there.
