Workshops & Retreats
Combining my passion for food, wellness, conscious living and nature connection, I offer workshops and retreats, designed to indulge your senses... renew your spirit...restore your body and awaken curiosity and imagination.
This is where I get to express my passion for food, as it not only sustains us but awakens our senses, uniting us to the earth, friends and encouraging community. Expressed through a "hands on class", we'll join in the preparation of our meal together as we learn about the specific ingredients and how they support us nutritionally. We'll experience how mindfulness is at the core of how we appreciate food.
Allowing ourselves the time to fully experience the natural world is so restorative for the body. Incorporating the practice of Shinrin-yoku, one gets to switch from doing to feeling, and noticing both inwardly and outwardly. What was once familiar or even un-noticed...we begin to take note of textures and colors, the fragrances wafting about and the mesmerizing shapes of clouds and they drift in and out. We learn to cultivate awareness as we begin to feel and understand our connection to nature. It listens, it speaks to us, it opens its arms wide to hold us and it bears its beauty for all to see and feel.

What People Are Sharing
I attended a Forest Bathing lecture and walk last October that Carol facilitated. Her passion and excellence in all she does is so inspiring. This lecture and walk was incredibly interesting, and Carol added many personal touches. She gently guided us in many different ways to be attuned of each one of our senses when we are outside in nature. We had a chance to walk with new awareness, and as a conclusion Carol had prepared a lovely tea ceremony with many of the plants from the area we walked through. Carol is an incredible, kind, compassionate and enlightened woman and I look forward to hopefully attending more of her classes and walks in the future!
