Take a Peek into Our Day
We will start the day slowly with an opening circle to set our intention and deepen our connection as a group. Afterwards, we will enjoy an herb walk, learn about the medicinal plants around us, and forage fresh herbs to enjoy as medicine later in the day. Our herb walk will lead us to a special spot in Verdant Hollow’s magical woods, where Cass will lead us through a yoga movement practice fit for women of all ages and phases of life.
A special lunch is to follow, featuring Verdant Hollow’s pasture-raised proteins and organic produce, as well as other local, medicinal delights to deeply nourish our bodies. After we have mindfully enjoyed our meal together, we will make tea with our wild herbs and drop into a powerfully connective tea ceremony as sisters.
To follow, we will experience the profoundly restorative practice of yoga nidra and bathe in the sounds of quartz crystal singing bowls as we rest among the trees.
To close the day, we will sow seeds as a sisterhood and plant our intentions for the Summer ahead. This will be an opportunity to reflect on your past, reclaim your present moment, and manifest whatever your heart reveals to you as you manifest for the future.

Verdant Hollow Farms
Verdant Hollow Farms is a farming operation restoring soils, water, and woodlands using regenerative practices. We celebrate the natural features of the land as a working farm with animals and vegetables and invite visitors and the local community to join us. Visiting individuals and groups will be immersed and educated in the environment and sustainable farming practices while enjoying high quality food, modest accommodations, and spaces for exploration.
This land was owned for the past forty-five years by a great family who did well at stewarding the land with livestock and some farming. They converted the original barn into their home in 1971 with Chicago architect Stanley Tigerman. It truly is a unique structure with original timbers, cedar paneling, and a spiral steel staircase that connects the four levels. The patriarch was a caring veterinarian who raised sheep and llama, planted a pine and walnut forest, and maintained an orchard. In more recent years, the sixty tillable acres were leased for corn and soy production.
