Bird Watching as Meditation #5

Experience one of the Great Migrations on Earth!

April 22-24, 2016
Earth Day Weekend!


In Spring, an amazing migration takes place, as warbers and neo-tropical birds return from their wintering grounds in Central and South America...some of them straight through their breeding grounds in North America. The longest songbird migration is by the Blackpoll annual round trip of 12,000 miles! And several years I have spotted them at Prairie Pond Woods filling up on caterpillars before moving on! 

This retreat offers a relaxed and intimate birding experience during a quiet weekend at Prairie Pond Woods. Beginning birders will learn to identify the usual suspects that come to the well-stocked feeders...maybe even the Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks above! But we'll also venture out on The Refresher Course to learn to identify field marks, songs and individual well as take time to enjoy their beauty! You just might find out why we are told to "consider the birds of the air..."

Birdwatching is one of the BEST ways to slow down and be present.

Friday 7pm - Sunday 11 am - $125.00 per person 
Registration limited to 6 (rooms and baths shared)

  Registration Deadline: March 10, 2016

A Writing & More Writing Retreat

June 3-5, 2016

Are you working on a writing project? Would you like to start one...or finally put the finishes touches on it?
Plenty of time for that here!

Are you interested in exploring how nature can enhance your writing?  Through exercises, you have the option to explore how our knowledge of nature can enhance the use of metaphor, simile, plot and storytelling, and how incorporating nature into your life can be a writing discipline

Would you like to create a blog or website but can't find the time to begin? WIFI is available to do just that!

This retreat gives you the option to focus on any of these questions.
There will be plenty of time for free writing and at least one voluntary sharing session. 

Friday 7pm - Sunday 11 am - $125.00 per person 
Registration limited to 6 (rooms and baths shared)

  Registration Deadline: March 10, 2016

All Retreats involve the following...


Friday night is a casual time to unwind with snacks and get to know other participants. Later we may venture outside for an owl hike or to view the stars or firelies!

Saturdays begin with a Morning Discovery Walk, weather permitting. Afterward, we'll enjoy Brunch together. Afternoons are a rare time of being on your own...meditating, journaling, napping, reflecting, exploring more in nature, photography, or other ways of "deepening down" to let the Spirit speak to our hearts. Heart by Nature is happy to provide reflective exercises for this time if you want them.

Sunday you can choose to sleep in (heavenly!) or take another guided Morning Walk...or spend time in solitude on the trails before brunch.

Snacks and meals are provided. 
Food will be prepared and shared communaly.
You may bring your favorite wineto share and drink in moderation.
