Join our adventures

In the workshops we spend most of our time outdoors in the gardens and the woods, fields and wetlands learning from the plants and the environment. Something quite tender happens when we spend this kind of quality time in nature. Our essence is bathed in a sweet silence and an unspoken acceptance that nurtures our souls.

There have been so many stories told, teachings shared, songs sung and friendships begun in this Woodland Circle ~ where many rich memories are woven into the space where people, plants and ideas come together. Please take a look at our workshops below.

Book your adventure today!

The magic starts the minute you step off of the trail.
