Weleda’s Nature Connection Workshops

This series of workshops at Weleda offers many different opportunities to help you deepen your own personal connection to nature and develop a sense of wonder and reverence towards her.

For far too long humanity’s relationship to nature has been one of separation and exploitation. But it’s becoming increasingly urgent for us to realise that we are part of nature, not separate from her.

What we do to the natural world we do to ourselves.
