Come Wander With Us

Upcoming Classes

Studio Beju - Duvall

We are thrilled to be teaching for the first time at the wonderful Studio Beju in Duvall, in the rural Snoqualmie Valley (where 2 of us live) 


Mindful in the Wild Women's Walk

Friday June 28th, 10 - noon


 As women we often feel pulled in many directions, pressured by time and commitments, taking care of those we love and managing obligations.  This Mindful in the Wild walk is designed for women to heal, recharge, and reconnect, while immersed in nature.  You can expect to arrive to an inviting and peaceful space within Studio Beju, and after a brief introduction and initial mindfulness exercise, you will join this intimate group of women on a mindful walk in nearby McCormick Park, while learning the practices of Shinrin-yoku (Japanese Forest Bathing).   As we wander, Deborah and Jessica will guide you in an experience that opens you to the healing powers of nature, creating calm within and a centered place of being.

Taught by Jessica Volpentesta and Deborah Wilk 

Cost: $35


To register, send us an email at mindfulinthewild@gmail.com with your name, email address, and what class you are registering for.  Cash or check will be accepted at the start of the class.

Valley Wild Womens Walks

Deborah and Jessica V both live out in the Snoqualmie Valley, which is filled with so much beauty and wonder, we want to lead some restorative, rejuvenating walks for women this summer. Our first one will be taught through the eclectic and wonderful Studio Beju in Duvall. See class desciption above! 

Mindful in the Wild half day or full day Immersive Wanders

For those looking for a longer, more immersive experience, this may be for you! A Shinrin-yoku (Japanese Forest Bathing) walk typically requires at least 3 hours, preferably in a quiet, wild natural setting away from urban distractions. More info soon! 

We'd love to hear from you!
