It's a month for giving thanks, and one of the best places to reflect and harvest all the blessings of your life is in the beauty of the great outdoors. We hope you'll join us in the forest this month as we acclimate to the change in seasons, celebrate the on-going gifts of wild food, and take time to rest, restore and reconnect!
Scroll on to read IYE news & join us outside this November!
We’re excited to share that our founder Katie was recently featured in CanvasRebel Magazine! Katie’s interview is a part of an article series called “𝑨 𝑻𝒂𝒍𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝑻𝒘𝒐 𝑯𝒖𝒎𝒂𝒏 𝑵𝒆𝒆𝒅𝒔.” In her interview, Katie shares a story about risk, how her path brought her to the idea of launching In your Element, and the fear that comes with big life changes. We hope you'll take a minute to check it out!
Relax, restore & explore during this special twilight experience at Blandford Nature Center! If you're curious about shinrin-yoku (aka: “forest bathing"), this is a great opportunity to see what a guided wellness practice in nature has to share with you. This program also includes hot stone handwarmers and hot tea beneath the stars. This is our LAST shinrin-yoku program at Blandford in 2022! We hope you can be there!
As the seasons shift, we're switching back to our once monthly cold weather foraging classes! Mark your calendar for Nov 13 and join Katie & Luke to learn about the amazing wild foods of November. We'll teach you identification, how to ethically harvest, share some of our favorite recipes & more. We hope to see you there!
(Save the date for our Dec. foraging class: Sun, Dec 11, 10:30-11:30am!)
Our cold weather forest bathing classes are BACK! These 1-hr experiences are offered once monthly & are all about self-care. Join us in the forest for a grounding guided nature meditation, a short breathwork practice in the fresh air, and a forest bathing invitation to help you relax, keep connected to nature, and come into alignment with the changing seasons. Class ends with a closing community circle, where we’ll share a few words and enjoy time together among the trees. (Hot stone handwarmers included!)
Upcoming Class:Saturday, Dec 3, 10-11am, Provin Trails, Grand Rapids
