Finding ways to get outside and connect with nature have never been more important. Fresh air and exercise can improve your mental health, offer respite from your busy life, and improve physical well-being. Time for meditation and prayer help you to be attuned to the Spirit and attentive to the Divine. All of our programs offer close encounters with green spaces and opportunity for healing and joy.
This summer we are all adjusting to post-pandemic life. These events will engage your body and soul in activities that offer opportunities for reflection, joy and healing. No special skills or experience is required!
Your registration fee includes coffee, parking, wifi, clean washrooms and a great workshop outdoors (rain or shine), plus the opportunity to stay all day afterwards to picnic or hike the trails.
These events are by pre-registration only and have a limited capacity to stay within the public health guidelines.
Cost: $60 per person

Saturday, Aug 7 - Lena's Watercolour Painting
Lena Montecalvo is a self-taught watercolour artist who began painting shortly after her artist mother's death in 2013. Diving in headfirst and now hundreds of paintings later, Lena is an instructor both privately and with the Dundas Valley School of Art. She sells her own unique line of original works, prints and greeting cards, using vibrant hues in untraditional ways, and believes in colouring outside the lines while breaking all the rules. She truly believes art is for everyone and that we only need the right instruction, motivation, and environment to begin accessing our own creative spirit. Her love relationship with Canada’s breathtaking landscape often makes its way into her art and her abstract-feeling forms, colour choices and designs relate our prairies, mountains, lush forests and crystal-like waters to the viewer in a way that allows one to feel its true majesty.
