Visit an authentic Nova Scotian fishing village for a day of wellbeing: self-reflection, creative play, lobster rope weaving, fresh salty air & ocean views!

Journey down a path of wellness with local lobster rope weaver, eco-artist and environmentalist, Wendy Hanlan. You will be guided through several creative play activities including forest bathing, walking a meditation labyrinth and making nautical home decore using ghost gear collected from local coastlines.

You will leave with a nature journal to continue your wellness journey at home and earth-friendly home decore. The group will work outside and enjoy the gorgeous views of the Petpeswick Inlet and snack on delicious charcuterie. If the day is cool there will also be a bonfire and blankets.
