Herbal Healing Retreats

SPRING

SUMMER

FALL

Attend one season or all three.

A retreat experience spread out across the seasons, 

weaving together herbal wisdom, foraging, gardening, 

earth (re)connection, healing & growth.  Our retreats are facilitated in a way which supports individual and collective learning & growing through experiential processes and hands-on-learning.

During each seasonal retreat, we meet in-person for a full-day, every other week over the course of two months.  Time together is spent in both "active" learning/doing and "passive" quiet/reflective experiencing.  A few Tuesday evening zoom meetings (spread-out over the two months) tie in finer details underpinning the experiential learning and serve as check-in points for anything that needs review/revisiting.
