Already fantasizing about a New Year's reprieve?
Seeking guidance on the next steps in your life?
January is the perfect time for resting, renewing, and visioning the year ahead.
Come gather around the fire and sink into the crystalline quiet while deeply nourishing yourself.
During this spacious weekend you will connect with the spirit of Winter and its power to impart clarity in your lives. Slowing down, feeling where you are in the moment, reflecting on where you have been, opening to guidance and visioning where you see ourselves in the coming seasons. Your circle of support will include each other and our more-than-human allies in the natural world. Perhaps you will…
~ melt into an herbal foot soak and guided visioning meditation
~ gaze into roaring flames under the night sky…burn what no longer serves… catch
glimpses of your future
~ breath in the scent of Mugwort, a Native American visioning herb, make a dream
pillow and invite guidance in your nighttime sojourns
~ commune with the stand of White Pine that hold stillness, peace and the ever green
hope of new beginnings
~ craft your own tea blend from herbs lovingly grown or wildcrafted on the farm…savor
their healing goodness and take some home
~ gently stretch and expand your body, breath and awareness with morning and
evening yoga and guided forest walks
~ quiet, listen, receive the wisdom of the elements, the plants, the animals and
~ relish warm, nourishing plant-based meals (and herbal chocolate!) with fine
companions, celebration and gratitude

(plentiful ideas and supplies provided)
