ENJOY THE FRESH AIR, NATURE SOUNDS,

AND A DELICIOUS, SEASONAL MEAL ON THE FARM.

TOGETHER WE’LL LEARN HOW TO BE PRESENT AND

AWARE IN OUR ENVIRONMENT AS IT INFORMS US

This 2-day workshop is a refreshing weekend to unplug and realize our connection to nature. We will restore our minds and bodies, and reawaken our sense of acceptance and connectedness.

This is the third workshop in our Seasonal Living Series hosted by Soul Equine in collaboration with Valerie Noell (Creative Director, The Eternal Child).

They invite back their Friends: Kit McDaniel (Movement + Embodiment Strategist ), Britanie Kessler (Acupuncturist + Chinese Medicine ), Brianna Sas ( Sound Healing, Elixir Field Wellness ), Briana Thorton ( Tea Tasting, Aesthete tea) and local plant based Chef, Sean Sigmon (Folklore PDX) – to create a seasonal experience that stimulates the mind and body, and brings you back to your center.

We invite you to join us this Memorial Day weekend at Looking-Glass House & Farm – where we will once again step into nature with new friends – and explore the seasons of Spring + Summer.

This winter workshop is a day to unplug & realize our connection to nature.

We will refresh our minds & bodies, shake the winter-time-blues, & enter the new year with a new sense of acceptance & connectedness. 


“We’ve created this series based around the seasons— because seasons are the way in which the earth informs us about life’s necessary cycles. ”


Winter can be a challenging time as the weather shifts and we find ourselves looking inward. This workshop will acknowledge nature’s winter themes, while providing tools for a healthy season & perspective shift.

Discover what it feels like to be on a serene, intentional, farm – with animals and good company – in the cool, winter air.

Experience an authentic tea tasting, & a delicious, seasonal meal –prepared in the earth with intention and the heat of a live-fire.

COZY UP AND ENJOY THE CRISP AIR, NATURE SOUNDS, AND A DELICIOUS, FALL-INSPIRED, FAMILY STYLE MEAL ON THE FARM.

TOGETHER WE’LL LEARN HOW TO BE PRESENT AND AWARE IN OUR ENVIRONMENT AS IT INFORMS US THROUGH THE SEASONS. 

 

According to a BBC Earth article, an analysis found that people with a stronger connection to nature experienced more life satisfaction and positive affect.

 Our connection to nature plays an important role in who we are. We are nature.

However, many of us live lifestyles that inevitably create a feeling of separateness. Nature becomes something we must look to experience outside of ourselves and our daily schedules.

This workshop is a day to totally unwind, unplug, and realize your connection to nature once more.

We’ve created this series based around the seasons— because seasons are the way in which the earth informs us about life’s necessary cycles.

This FALL workshop is centered around what nature teaches us in autumn: slow down, detox, let go, & self- reflect.

What does it feel like to be on a serene, intentional, farm – with animals and good company – in the crisp, autumn air?

Imagine us gathering around a delicious, seasonal meal –prepared in the earth with intention and the heat of a live-fire.

We are your holistic guides, here to support you, but also to explore with you, this season of brewing energy within. We will look to the animals as our guides. We will discuss essential oils, grounding & clearing, breath & awareness, and communicating to our bodies what it desires most from nature’s wisdom.

We believe that being present is a practice of intention. We are fully committed to that intention. We have beautifully curated every detail of this day to bring you back to a feeling of renewal, and a sense of coming home.

  • EXPLORE living in accordance with the seasons through the lens of Nature + Chinese Medicine

  • DISCOVER our inner guide through our environment & immersion with the animal herd

  • LEARN practical, take-away tools for staying healthy & shifting perspective with the seasons
