The landscape is streaked with color, leaves are falling all around, and animals are on the move! While the return of cold temperatures can make it can be tempting to stay inside, November offers us a beautiful opportunity to align with nature as we welcome the coming winter into our lives. We hope you'll join us for some time in the forest THIS Thursday during our November 2 sunset and starlit Guided Shinrin-yoku experience at Blandford Nature Center. Just 6 spots left! We also have a 2023 Gratitude Harvest challenge to share (with a chance to win a FREE community class), an upcoming December foraging class featuring holiday flavors, updates on 2024 programming & more!

Join us for our final monthly guided Shinrin-yoku (AKA: forest bathing) program at Blandford Nature Center in 2023! These 1.5-hr experiences are a wonderful way to slow down, reduce stress, and tap into your connection to nature as you explore the beauty of Blandford Nature Center. Our time together ends with wild foraged tea in the forest. As the seasons shift and days get shorter, this November 2 event will take place at sunset and end with candlelit tea among the trees. We hope to see you there!
Our community classes are typically hosted once a month, EVERY month. These classes have shifted to a pop-up style basis until January, as we welcome our daughter Anna & adjust to life at home together. To learn about pop-up classes, watch for emails from us via this newsletter or follow us on Instagram @iyewellness or via Facebook HERE.
These 1-hr experiences with Katie include breathwork, meditation and guided forest bathing to help you release stress, connect to nature, and explore the gifts of forest bathing among community. Essential oils provided for meditation.
Stay tuned for a possible pop-up class before the end of 2023!
These 1-hr classes are led by our instructors Katie and Luke and are designed to help you learn how to identify edible plants and mushrooms in the forest, what you can use them for, where to find them & ethical foraging practices.
