Tea Hike Adventure – Spring Equinox

March 20 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Chinese medicine encourages us to apprentice to the seasons as a way to cultivate life force energy and to open to the wisdom and guidance of nature.  Spring celebrates the Wood Element. In Chinese medicine Wood energetics signal movement up and out into the world.
Now it is time to spring forth and move your energy up and out.  Harmonize your life force with the season of Spring.  This helps to lift depression and supports the health of the Liver.  Come generate aliveness and refresh your senses!

You will learn skills to enhance your connection with yourself, community and nature:

  • Buddhist practice of sitting meditation
  • Taoist practices of Qigong
  • Wildcrafting in your own backyard
  • Eco-Awakening practice -The art of solo-wandering.
  • Community Building tools

Covid Statement: Masks are required. Limited to 12 participants. There will be plenty of outdoor space to practice social distancing.

Nature-based questing is not your typical walk in the woods. It is a radical way to dive deeply within your personal ecology and effectively re-imagine your world. Our approach is to cultivate wholeness through the integration of ancient Chinese medicine and modern eco-psychology. Create a world that is founded on your inmost self, your longings for humanity, its evolution and your most profound connection to nature.

We offer day-long journeys and also guide week and year-long quests. These immersions allow you to apprentice with nature and the wisdom embedded in each of the seasons.
