About this event

The crisp fall air has arrived and it's time to CELEBRATE the harvest of abundance- aka all the work we've done throughout the summer months. If you're feeling the need for a fun day of nourishment and self care, this is for you! Make new friends, try new things, get out of your comfort zone in a safe and supported space. Serenity Farm is such a welcoming and expansive environment, it's the perfect place for a self-care celebration!

This experience provides nourishment for the mind, body and spirit! Yes please!

The owners of Da Kine's Kava Bar (which is located in downtown Durham) will be co-creating this event. Kava is a root plant, and when ground down and made into a drink, this alcohol-alternative (It's alcohol free**) has significant effects on the nervous system and body. After drinking kava you'll notice a feeling of relaxation and eases stress/ anxiety. You'll feel more social and more open. You'll sleep better! Zoey and Brent will explain more about Kava and lead the group through a traditional Kava circle to start the day. Your Harvest Retreat ticket will include 2 cups of kava, one traditional cup at the start of the day, and one of Da Kine's signature kava mocktails.

In celebration of the beautiful fall weather, together we'll go on a nature hike to falls lake (about a 30 minute walk from Serenity Farm).

Sharon MacGregor, owner and steward of Serenity farm will be creating a nourishing afternoon fall meal- this will be a grounding, nourishing, hearty meal- it's a long day, so we'll make sure to be well fed! Sharon is known for creating DELICIOUS homemade vegan meals- that will SHOCK you with their flavor. She offers so much nutritional wisdom and makes even the most anti-vegan people drool!

After lunch we'll have a conscious crafting workshop. Crafts are NOT just for children. Conscious crafting will help you relax and open, reconnecting you with your true self. Together we will make mandalas, which have become popular recently, but have been used for centuries in Eastern countries as a therapeutic healing tool. During this time, Kava cocktails will be served, encouraging relaxation of the mind and body in preparation for the upcoming yoga and breathwork experiences!

The second half of the experience will begin at 4:30pm, at which time we'll transition from the back of the property up to the front lawn. Those who are unable to attend the day portion of the retreat will join us at 4:30 where Sharon will teach a 60 minute grounding and strengthening hatha yoga class, directly followed by a relaxing and refreshing breathwork session led by Kelsey.

After these grounding and juicy self-care practices, it's time to get the real party started. We'll have a sunset bonfire with S'mores, music and a community gathering of open-minded & hearted people. Additional kava will be available for purchse during this time.

This is going to be a really nourishing and grounding day- the celebration YOU deserve!
