"He felt closer to God down there on the farm than sitting on a pew in church."
All women are naturally connected with the cycles of the Earth.
However, both the pressures and the conveniences of modern day life often leave us disconnected from nature and all that is has to offer. In the past, humans based their understanding of how to successfully ‘be’ on the cycles, symbols, and balance of nature.
This immersive and reflective workshop is designed to help women rediscover their center through meditation, storytelling, and Shinrin-Yoku (forest bathing); express themselves through writing and art; and understand feminine powers to create and make change in the world.
The workshop also encourages environmental stewardship by highlighting the features of the bioregions we are a large part of.
"My Introduction to Walnut Hill Nature Preserve, March 2017"
Walnut Hill Farm's soils once supported over 2,700 acres of farming, making it one of the biggest agricultural operations in Wake County. The 400-acre preserve was in the Williamson family for over 225 years. In addition to its high-quality soils, the property also contains contiguous, unfragmented forests, several streams that connect to the Neuse River, and significance as a Natural Heritage Site.
