Nature has become a large influence in my life. I am always looking for a way to get outside and connect! The visual beauty of nature has called to me and has been my inspiration for self-expression in the practice of photography.
The outdoors has been my place to build physical endurance and move my body; every day and usually twice a day I get out to refresh and breathe in fresh air. I walk whenever and wherever I can and it feels good. Nature has been my go to when I seek comfort and solace. Nature and the outdoors is where I find balance for my elements.

Testimonials from Retreats:
Great way to learn new things about our energy and a great way to do something different and “outside of the box”. Would be a wonderful day for a group of friends. Lauren T.
Thank-you! Lovely and relaxing day! It was fun to sit and take time for yourself and to learn about who you are as a person more deeply. Arielle S.
Lovely day Janice, You are our inspiration. Such a gentle, peaceful presentation. P-E-R-F-E-C-T Dianne P.
Thank-you for a “different” kind of day. I learned a lot and hope to be able to use some of the information in every day life. Rebecca S.
Thank you Janice for the wonderful day at Ben Miller Inn. I really enjoyed myself in addition to the many benefits I noticed after. Your casual fun style of leading a workshop is most pleasant and your very soothing way of talking us through some meditative sessions really worked for me. I can’t remember the last time I was able to sit still like I could during this portion of the retreat. So this is considered a big accomplishment to me as I can rarely reach that level of relaxation. I also liked the agenda for the day: mixing up some creative exercises with an enjoyable outdoor walk, incredible lunch (thank you for all your efforts there too!), learning more about how to take care of and treat ourselves well in addition to some meditation. I left the retreat feeling so relaxed but when I got home I then felt very energized to get things done, but this time with a sense of calm and order versus my usual semi-stressed rushed-feeling and anxious states. But in addition to the energy I felt early that night, I was also able to sink quickly into a great deep sleep that night. So thank you for this opportunity to spend the day at a retreat as I really enjoyed it and saw many benefits from it! I would most certainly sign up for another retreat with you in the future and would love to bring a few friends next time too!Great job Janice! This certainly is something you are great at doing!
