About the Program
Discover the subtle, healing gifts of winter with our immersive workshop. Explore nature’s power to enhance mental health and well-being, even amidst the cold and darkness. Engage in an intimate, sensory-rich journey, experiencing the profound beauty and tranquility of winter from the warmth of your space. We will dive deep into experiential explorations that foster a profound bond with the natural world, uncovering the unique lessons winter offers about resilience and the value of stillness and introspection. Participants are encouraged to bring along a candle, a collection of natural items like stones or dried flowers, and a houseplant, facilitating a richer, hands-on connection with nature’s elements.
