Wonderland and Mindfulness

Winter Wonderland.png

Gatineau Hills is Wonderland.

We live in one of the most beautiful area in the world where winter magic is at it's best. The unique approach of outdoor experiences through the lens of mindful and meditative contemplation brings "Into Being" to an entirely new way of viewing nature at its best.

Embark on a nature experience and discover the fascinating world of the late-winter forest.

  • Snowshoe on the user friendly trails (snowshoes can be rented- please inquire) Walking is also an option.

  • Experience the healing qualities of forest bathing

  • Observe winter birds and any other winter mammals in their natural habitat

  • Venture in a night walk under the moon

  • Storytelling and sharing around the bonfire

  • Enjoy gentle yoga and movement classes indoors

  • As usual all is optional.

Come enjoy the peaceful calm of snow-covered trails as you develop both observation and mindfulness skills in the great outdoors.
