About this trip

Join herbalists Susanna Raeven and Samuel Perry, and vocal transformation coach Maryn Azoff for a healing weekend retreat at Raven Crest Farm in upstate NY.   


Connect deeply with the fall season in the beautiful autumn setting of our forested hills and learn how the healing power of plants can support our lungs, strengthen the immune system and help us to stay healthy through the winter months. Enjoy medicine foods for the autumn season, harvest medicinal roots and mushrooms with love and respect, create your own winter elixirs and stir the caldron to cook a delicious immunity broth. Practice gratitude for the gifts of Mother Earth  and enjoy walks in our beautiful woods.

Just as plants are great healers, your own voice and breath can be your winter medicine, lift your spirit and warm your soul. Maryn Azoff will guide you through the realm of your own healing voice. We will share singing circles around a sacred fire and learn medicine songs to accompany our root harvests. The forest will wear her gorgeous fall colors and the land has abundant magic to share.


 We will share warming and nourishing meals cooked with Raven Crest farm grown roots and vegetables and sip delicious chai teas and golden milk. Who wants to come?

COVID REQUIREMENTS It is most important to us to provide a safe and COVID free environment during our events.

We are also asking participants, helpers and instructors to limit their contact with other people in the preceding days before the event and follow general covid safety guidelines. Summer 2022 is still a while away and these requirements are subject to change as our journey during these times continues.

Reviews

This was an amazing weekend, full of learning & a spiritual reflection for our natural world. Sam the herbalist broke down herbalism in a thoughtful way, with active learning that included walking in the garden, plant observation, and notes. Susanna is an incredibly kind & intuitive soul, who sang for us and led a sound meditation and ceremonies. The group was just the right size, the farm staff are friendly, welcoming people who add to the experience. This was an incredibly intentional & peaceful weekend. Oh & lastly The food by Katia was 4 stars, some of the best healthy eating I've done in a setting like that. I recommend for anyone interested in the healing qualities of plants, herbalism, or simply to restore and connect with nature.
