Bend of Ivy's February 2022 Newsletter

Dear all,

Sending you wishes that you're nurturing, feeding and fueling well your body, heart, head and soul. I did today with a hike and visit to see the goats, with Jackson our border collie pup. That fed and fueled me. My whole being. Especially my heart. This is winter, and it's supposed to be a slower time of resting if we follow nature's rhythm. Sometimes that happens here, and often it's not slow with winter BOI projects. Winter is a key prep time for us for needed grounds and maintenance projects. As a former landscape designer, I know the value of winter planning, prep and envisioning. Seeding intentions, growth, plans. Besides the land and people, key for us in our caretaking is the well-being of our goats. Our goats are precious to us, part of our fur family and grounds team. This week we lost one, Luna. She passed Wednesday evening, a full moon night. She was beautiful, lively, feisty, sometimes shy with people and loved her family. Especially her brother Chaundra and mom Tia. We will miss her. Many wonderful upcoming retreats are happening at BOI this year by talented teachers, trainers, healers and coaches. Check out our 2022 BOI Public calendar for updates to our retreat and program calendar. As for updates, a current new one is a new trail project, and goat care project. A new temporary goat feeding field has been set up, to clear the land for a new trail and tree bathing trail. It's a delightful forest area, close to the Lodge and Studio. Check out our FB and IG sites for updates and goat photos.
