Each workshop will mirror one of the four seasons in the northern hemisphere and offer opportunities to explore them as archetypes which flow naturally through our human experiences. The archetypes may show up as chapters in our lives or moments during our day. For example, a period of contraction (winter) may follow an experience of deep grief, or a feeling of abundance (summer) may accompany a time of rapid growth.

A Journey of Wonder is thoughtfully crafted with experiential activities including: mindfulness, meditation, movement, yoga, immersion in healing aspects of nature, mandala and artistic experiences, and music-evoked imagery experiences through a group adaptation of The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery & Music. Participants will also receive a workbook for ongoing exploration between each workshop session. The workbook contains meditations, activities, journal prompts, music suggestions, recipes, and more. The In-Person Retreat also includes a healthy lunch and snacks each day, herbal preparations such as tinctures and salves, art supplies, and plenty of time exploring the gardens and bees.  Click here to register through Spikenard Farm Honeybee Sanctuary.
