Program information

Do you long to be back in nature? Do you feel disconnected from the natural world? Want to incorporate more herbs in your everyday self-care plan? 

Due to COVID-19, we have chosen to postpone our in-person retreat. Please stay tuned for online options.

Join us at Kirkridge Retreat & Study Center to join in community as we discuss and create space for starting this journey of the intersections of nature’s bounty and nurturing yourself. 

Centering and balancing yourself is essential to your wellness. Incorporating self-soothing techniques including utilizing nature’s bounty is a great way to practice self-care. If you’ve been curious about how to incorporate herbs into your daily life, you are welcome to join us for a weekend of abundance! Everyone can use herbs in their approaches to holistic health and healing–and any one can learn! Pennsylvania, and specifically the Poconos region, should be the host to many native and local plants that are commonly used for the kitchen and the medicine cabinet. This includes basil, mint, rosemary, lavender, oregano, and thyme.
