Bend of Ivy's October 2022 Newsletter

Dear BOI Friends,

Fall brings change. Some changes are bright and visible, like the vibrant fall foliage that's popping now. As shown in this week's photo, bright gold, orange and reds are glowing at the Koi pond now.

Some fall changes are quieter. As the evenings and weather get cooler, quiet changes are happening at BOI.

Creatures and plants are slowing down, some getting ready to hibernate like our Koi fish. Our beloved elder goat Chloe, our brown speckled dear one horn goat, is slowing down with age. That happens.

Beloveds come in many forms. They are loves, dear to us. They can be creatures, humans, nature, pets, places and spaces.

The goat herd's now moved to their winter paddock, area between the Lodge and Farmhouse. Guests can easily see and watch the goats hanging out or playing there. Easy viewing from the Lodge, pond or Studio. And it's often mutual observation. The goats love watching BOI guests and their activities.

Bend of Ivy supported many groups and organizations in September as a healing, wellness and growth space. We're grateful for that. Wellness and well-being in nature are key desires in our clients' work. Shares of some September groups and organizations retreating at BOI are below.

And... on the note of wellness and well-being... If you are supporting others in your work and life (that's our BOI clients' profile), please remember to take care of your self. Self-care and self-compassion are resiliency fuels. That's part of my own journey, and remembering.

Be well, and take care,
