What a delicious time we have planned. 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. 
  • Connect with the horses & cows in our horse & farm sanctuary. Sit with them and let them help you find peace & quietness so you can tune into your heart's desire.   
  • 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.

For sleeping, you have your choice of elegant rooms with outdoor hot tubs and fireplaces. Additional services can be booked for the open afternoon on Day 2.  Come alone or bring a friend for added support and accountability.

What previous retreat guests are saying:

" This adventure came at the perfect time, was the perfect setting, and everyone was fantastic.  I met new friends, relaxed, dugged deeply, ate and ate and ate, talked to the trees and animals, and spent lots of time figuring out what's next. Thank you!"

 "It was such a fabulous week and I am so very blessed to have met each and every one of you. I cannot wait to see how we all progress in the coming weeks and months throughout our "check ins.""

​ "I 'experienced' nature in a whole new space and the opportunities were delivered with such creativity, passion and wisdom. At 54 and an outside enthusiast for years, today thanks to Forest Therapy I see a new nature...which gives me personal guidance and will benefit my connection and balance for years to come."
