  • Through The Trees

    “It was so nice to connect with people in nature over tea and share and learn together about the full moon. The releasing ceremony was just what I needed to get rid of what no longer serves me and make room for more positive things in my life. I left feeling lighter and with a great sense of peace and contentment.”

  • Through The Trees

    “We did forest bathing and learned about trees and sustainable use of tree parts for tea and tinctures. It really helped me feel centered and grounded, and I can’t wait to try making Tree tea at home.”
