Every year Crieff Hills hosts a Women’s Weekend to make space for women to relax and recieve the rest and renewal that is needed.
Our keynote speak is Laura Alary! Laura will be speaking about her new book “Here. The Dot We Call Home” and how we can can be better stewards to our land.
Laura Alary is a writer, educator, and storyteller. She has loved books since she was barely big enough to clamber up the steps of the book mobile that rolled into her neighborhood once a week. These days she is happy to be surrounded by books in the library where she works, and she delights in writing stories that make us bigger on the inside. Among her recent books are What Grew in Larry’s Garden, Sun in My Tummy, and The Astronomer Who Questioned Everything. Laura grew up by the ocean in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and also spent many hours exploring the beaches of Prince Edward Island—one of her favorite spots on this dot we call home. She now makes her home in Toronto, where she likes to walk by the lake and think about how she can be a better ancestor.
We are excited to welcome:
- Lena Montecalvo of Lena’s Watercolours to host a painting workshop.
- Crieff Hills Director, Rev. Dr. Kristine O’Brien
- Missi Chenier, of Santosha Yoga Therapy to host Restorative Yoga.
