THE SEASONAL SAGE
Come Home To Yourself Through Nature
A Truly Magickal Experience In Nature
“Go out in the woods, go out. If you don’t go out in the woods nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin.” – Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
There’s only 5 total spots available for this sweet, intimate forest experience.
It’s true that being in nature heals the mind, body, and spirit.
A disconnection from nature drains our life force and withers our souls. This causes us to become numb to our senses and we are less able to access joy and wonderment.
The Seasonal Sage is a truly magickal, immersive, forest experience that includes a sprinkling of all things nourishing: restorative time in nature, seasonal noticing and alignment, intuitive oracle divination, and forest tea ritual.
The Seasonal Sage is a way of coming home to yourself through nature. We’ll walk alongside nature’s rhythms for an entire year, and learn what each season has to offer us.
The Seasonal Sage Details
Dates: February 3, March 24, May 5, June 23, August 4, September 22, October 27, December 8
Location: Asheville/Arden, North Carolina area
Time: 10:00am – 11:30am
Rain Or Shine
Being in nature is about experiencing all that the forest has to offer, and that includes different types of weather.
Rain can be cleansing, and snow can be refreshing.
With that being said, experiences will not be cancelled due to weather unless conditions are extreme (torrential rain; lightning storms; or snow that makes the roads impassable).
If an experience is cancelled, another date will be scheduled within the same season (and please note that there is no guarantee that the new date will work for everyone as we all have busy schedules and lives).
Our Time In Nature
During each experience, we’ll usually be walking under a mile in total. This is more about being quiet and still in nature, and slowing ourselves down to see what we notice.
Each seasonal experience may be similar, or a bit different, as I will be crafting our experience anew as we enter each season.
You can expect any combination of the following: some stillness, some meditation, some journaling, some meaningful conversations, some oracle divinations, and some forest tea rituals.
The Eight Seasons
We will gather in the forest over eight seasons. I like to honor and notice the seasons at the times of the solstices, equinoxes, and the quarters in between.
Each season brings with it a deep wisdom that helps to grow us in ways that we could never imagine.
Throughout the year, my hope is that you will begin to notice and honor the seasons within you and know when it is a time for rest, a time for play, and a time for aligned work.
Continued Connection Over Lunch
After our time spent in nature, we’ll round out our experience by heading over to a nearby cafe for lunch and meaningful conversation.
We can chat about what is coming up for us with each season, what we are learning, and provide support to one another.
(optional, cost of lunch not included with Seasonal Pass)

And I love spending time in nature.
Forests are truly magickal. There’s nothing quite like walking alongside nature’s seasonal wheel, as you are supported and guided back to a better understanding and connection to yourSELF.
Let’s create magick in the forest.
