Food, Forest, Animals and Health! 
Wellness Retreat

July 30 at 4:00p.m. through Aug 2 at 11:30a.m., 2019

​​Interested in learning easy, delectable ways to put more plant-food on your plate?
Looking for simple, practical approaches to jump start happier, healthier living?
Ever feel that nature holds answers to much of our modern dis-ease?  

Come together with others who want to break some life-long habits and make a few small changes that can have a profound and lasting life-impact.  Free and almost-free, evidence-based, natural options abound!
You will be supported, challenged, respected and stretched to get in touch with what works for you and move into designing your healthier life.
What a delicious time we have planned at the stunning Mountain Horse Farm in Naples, NY! Please, join us…  
  • Learn about, explore, and try on plant-forward eating. With workshop learning and hands-on classes, topics include: seasoning and preparing yummy plant-based meals, substituting ingredients, fresh, seasonal food shopping and eating out healthily. We will make and savor some of our own meals so that you can see how to incorporate the process in your own kitchen!
  • With the forest as our guide, we will sink into the support of the natural world to reduce stress, boost your mood, and access your innate creativity and wisdom. The forest mirrors areas of growth, decay, resourcefulness and boundless resilience within us, allowing us to notice and embrace next steps in the fullness of our lives. 
  • Without riding, we will interact with a herd of horses and cows to experience inner growth and mindfulness – and learn that these big animals are gentle, playful, sentient beings, just like our beloved cats and dogs.   
  • With plenty of time for personal exploration, reflection, being in community with others ~ even time for a massage, we will feed our minds, bodies and souls.  
Join us for this extraordinary three-night, all-inclusive event, which includes the inspirational program across four days and all gourmet meals starting with dinner on the first day, and ending with grab-and-go lunch on the last day. For sleeping, you have your choice of elegant rooms with outdoor hot tubs to tipis (yes, tipis!) – your choice. Additional services can be booked for the open afternoon on Day 2.  Come alone or bring a friend for added support and accountability.
Join us for a few days to make choices right here and right now that you can implement immediately – and start living a healthier life
