Women in Nature 2019 theme announced: “Women of the Elements”
The 26th annual Women in Nature workshop — one of Indian Creek Nature Center’s longest running events, planned by women for women — will take place Saturday, April 27 at Indian Creek Nature Center.
This year’s workshop centers around the theme: “Women of the Elements.” Sessions throughout the day (8 AM – 3 PM) will reflect each of the five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Spirit. Examples include the event’s signature hikes on the Nature Center’s trails (earth), inspirational speakers (water, fire, air) yoga, sound healing, meditation (spirit) and more!
Speakers include Maria Dummermuth of Sage Practices, Ruth Dunlevy of Backwater Paddlers, Brittany Hannah of Bistro 3 Nineteen, Susan Stamats of Buzzards Glory and Dusty Swela of Panda Marie LLC. Breakfast will be provided by Bistro 3 Nineteen and lunch will be catered by New Pioneer Co-op — both offering gluten free and vegan options.
New this year, we are offering a number of vendors (local & femaleowned) for shopping and networking during the event, as well as door prizes and giveaways. This event is cherished by many — it’s a great way to get the girls together, get away from the hustle, get outside and gather with other women to feel inspired, nurtured and refreshed. You don’t have to go far for this weekend “getaway,” and in the end, you’ll come away with a group of lifelong friends.
