BOVINA, CATSKILLS - UPSTATE NEW YORK

October 19-23, 2022

I have been a fan from a distance of the BRUSHLAND family for years. Sohail is a chef whose way of hosting eaters in the Brushland Eating House is enough to make one weep with envy when the entrancing images pass through your Instagram timeline. His wife Sara is a design wizard who's created the most magical and understated interiors for their collection of Airbnbs. Her way with words and aesthetic fingerprint through their photographs makes you wish you could walk through a portal and end up on their land, pulling produce from their garden or dipping your toes into the running brook nearby. Add their two magnetic new daughters to the mix and you can see why the setting they provide has been so widely covered by media for its unique warmth, vitality and wholesome charm.

This is the setting for the first SOUL TOUR.

Our connection to food will be woven through our experience there whether that's a hot drink as we do our morning journaling, an intuitive cooking workshop, mushroom foraging, the local produce we consume at meals as we reflect on the lands and hands that cultivated it or the treat of a final night's dinner at the Brushland restaurant (an experience that would alone make the whole trip worth it).

We will also be synchronizing our souls to the truth of the natural world around us. With a walk each morning as the sun rises to set our circadian rhythms, we will also explore the health benefits of not using any artificial light (electricity or screens) after the sun has set. Each participant will be provided their own lantern as we travel to the days of old and experience a simpler way of life attuned to the season's unique daily rhythms.

Self healing workshops will be provided by myself, Libby and Daryl, each bringing our sacred modalities ranging from intuition development, divination, psychosynthesis, voice dialogue, breathwork and meditation. This inner work will be interspersed with experiences outdoors such as a funghi foraging adventure, visits to local farms and markets, hikes through fall foliage and evening bonfires.

Bring your coziest sweater, a favourite notebook and a fellow soul traveller, and let's do this.

GOOD NEWS FOR CANADIANS
 
Due to the fact that all my web services are offered in CAD dollars, and despite the fact that all of our expenses will be paid to providers in USD, I have decided to charge the original fees now in CAD if you register before October 1st (savings of approximately $600-900 CAD).
