BIPOC Wellness Day at Fox Haven Farm

June 15 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Donation
Come join us for a day of self-care and rejuvenation specifically designed for BIPOC individuals at the serene Fox Haven Farm.

BIPOC Wellness Day, taking place on June 15, 2024, is a retreat-style event designed to offer a deeply engaging experience that blends art and nature, exclusively for the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) community.

Join us for a day of rejuvenation! Immerse yourself in nature, link up with your community, and enjoy activities that create a supportive space to connect to your joy.

BIPOC instructors will lead sessions that encourage you to explore and express yourself. Planned activities include Nature Journaling, Dream Pillow Crafting & Storytelling, Herb Walks, Tea Tastings, African Drumming, free-flow dancing, nature-based children’s crafts, and more!

Our partner, Soul Street, is organizing a BIPOC Market of service providers that will offer consultations, mini-sessions, and demonstrations

Stay tuned for the full list of offerings as details are finalized.

Tickets are on a sliding scale to ensure accessibility for any BIPOC individuals who wish to attend.

We look forward to welcoming you to a day of connection, celebration, and well-being.

Our Intention

In partnership with BIPOC business owners, artists, and community agents, this project aims to leave a lasting positive impact on individuals and the community at large by emphasizing the importance of art and nature as integral components of wellness. Our intention is to celebrate the diverse, holistic expressions within the BIPOC community and cultivate a profound sense of belonging.

Should you feel compelled to support this cause, there is a space to donate in the ticket section. All funds raised will go toward covering the cost of paying our teachers and purchasing food. Thank you for your support! 💗

Dr. Lauren Michelle Hawkins, Naturopath
Dr. Lauren Is a licensed naturopathic doctor who helps people experience wellness from a perspective of respecting the body as a living ecosystem capable of healing. After completing her undergraduate education at Johns Hopkins University, she obtained her doctorate in naturopathic medicine at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. Lauren continued her studies to obtain certification as a Neuro Linguistic Practitioner (NLP), Hypnosis Practitioner, and Life & Success Coach. Her work, insights, and study continuously reveal that wellness is much deeper than engaging with our physical behaviors, activities, and habits. Wellness is personal, it’s an identity, it’s the energy we hold, it’s our relationship to living organisms, it’s the flexible balance we find at every step of our journey. Her current goal is to help people develop their own authentic wellness that allows for personal expression and relationship to self, as nature, within community.
