Silvae Spiritus is thrilled to share some news: we’re branching out!
We have expanded to add another ANFT Certified Guide, Annie Irene Hejny, to our Nature & Forest Therapy Guiding Team! Annie brings with her a wildly impressive resume as a visual artist; her inspiring work carries a deep reciprocity with Nature, and informs her ability to craft deeply evocative, spacious, tactile invitations. As we start adding public walks to our summer and fall 2021 calendar, you’ll see Annie’s name as the primary Guide on several of our Minneapolis / St. Paul and greater metropolitan area walks. We can’t wait for you to walk with her!
New Retreat Space
Silvae Spiritus co-founders, Leigha and Travis, recently opened Silvae Spiritus Northwoods Nature Retreat in Finlayson, Minnesota; just 90 minutes north of Minneapolis/St. Paul, 60 minutes south of Duluth, near the exquisite Banning State Park. While there are several phases to our business plan, we are proud to have just launched the first phase: simply opening our guest house via AirBnB, with the option to add on private Nature & Forest Therapy sessions during your stay. Each booking = one tree planted!
Same Strong Roots
With so many changes afoot, we assure you that we’re still standing strong with our roots deeply engaged in healing reciprocity with Nature. Your health and safety remain at the top of our priorities, and so we’ll be slowly and mindfully adding public walks to our schedule for 2021. For all those still in possession of Gift Certificates issued prior to the pandemic with expiration dates in 2020 and 2021, we are happy to share that all Gift Certificate expiration dates have been extended to December 31, 2022.
