  • One thing I have experienced since coming to Nurture Through Nature is the spirit which helps open the heart to light when it has been sheltered in darkness. When one leaves, the heart may begin to close up again but it never closes tightly and light still sifts in and each time one comes back to NTN the heart opens more and closes less.

  • This place was exactly what my partner and I wanted. Very private/ secluded but not isolated, rustic but not primitive, and a whole lot of love and magic to the space and land. We had a wonderful time. Highly recommended! Namaste –Amy Cappomacio, Philadelphia

  • What a perfect getaway from city life! My only wish is that I had been able to stay a bit longer. The eco-cabin is exactly as described - perfectly nestled in the Maine woods with nothing but nature everywhere you look. I had everything I needed while also pushing myself to become more aware of things I take for granted in every-day life such as electricity and water. Super impressed with the solar power setup and truly feeling off the grid. I will definitely be going back this summer and this time I'll make sure to leave time for the sauna and yoga :) –Kim Ramsdell, Boston

  • I spent the week of my 50th birthday alone in robin's nest this spring. it was delightful. I totally felt held in this sweet community and was allowed all of the solo space i might have wished for! The sauna and brook were terrific gifts. sleeping in a cabin and walking in the woods! such decadence! I am looking forward to returning this summer. Thank you so much! –Sandra Smith, Greenfield, MA
