Welcome to Our Woodland Escape
"I attended this retreat because I wanted to have some down time and reconnect to my spiritual side. I enjoyed the content of the retreat and also having alone time to be by myself in the hot tub. I also had a chance to lay on the dock in the dark and look at the stars and just be one with the universe. In attending this retreat it helped me really affirm I am on the right path. The food was phenomenal and overflowing and the accommodation was better than I expected! I liked that you taught at all levels. I was a little worried that this would be a “beginners” spiritual retreat. And it wasn’t. I think whatever level you are at, you would get something from this. I very much liked the whole botany plant aspect as I have been foraging for a few years. I feel like I could learn so much more from you and will definitely be keeping an eye for the next retreat you offer!" - R Littlewood
"I spoke comfortably out of my comfort zone with strangers who became family. I learned this weekend that I am loved and cherished for who I am. The food was great and felt like home and I loved the view from the cottages. I am definitely looking forward to attending more events facilitated by Tawny and am recommending to all I know to take the chance and try this retreat the next time it is offered!" - M Thompson
"This was my first time doing a retreat solo and it was phenomenal I loved the experience of being in a yurt for a retreat One of the biggest things I learned about myself while there was that even when I think I can’t do something....I can and this weekend reminded me that there are people that care and in a world where I feel like I am constantly being judged there are women that will hold sacred space and stand strong with me. I would totally attend future events and I will be bringing people with me."

"Tawny's Fireweed Learning Community is incredible. I've always been drawn to spending more time in nature, and sharing that experience with my kiddos, but aside from going for walks - I didn't really know what else to do. Tawny provides education, tools, ideas to explore nature in a simple way (because I'm pretty sure I overcomplicate these things). I loved the history and information about Easter and St Patrick's Day and the dialogue it opened with not just my smallest, but my teens as well. I also love love love the journal prompts - again, something I've dabbled in, off and on for most of my life. The direction is a blessing and has helped me connect in new and creative ways. I cannot recommend Fireweed Learning Community enough and having this new and unique way to connect with my children. Thank you for creating this space Tawny."

"I had a Medical Intuition Assessment from Tawny Stowe at the Fireweed Learning Community and it truly was an amazing experience. Everything she was able to sense from me was spot on. I definitely feel as part of my yoga practice and my overall wellness lifestyle that I am trying to achieve, learning how to repair my energetic disruptions within myself will make everything I’m working towards in my life come to full circle. Being as self aware as possible is my goal and to have someone be able to tap into my energies and to help me in the areas that I need improvement without judgement has given me such a new perspective on myself. I loved working with her and I highly recommend her services!"

"Tawny says it how it is in such an inspirational way. She’s compassionate, caring, loving, focused and most of all REAL. An all around talented and beautiful person inside and out. I’ve gone to Tawny for life coaching and she’s done many mentor sessions with me. She’s fabulous! She’s changed my life, made me realize that it’s ok to be wrong or FEEL a certain way it means I’m growing. Thank so much for helping me in my journey:) Teaching me that I don’t need to stress over unnecessary things and that I’m able to deal with life day by day hour by hour and min by min."
