About Forest Therapy
The Forest Is the Therapist
The Guide Opens the Doors
So what exactly is Forest Therapy? It is, in part, a relaxed and mindful way of being in nature, which supports healing and wellness. On your walk, I will guide you through sensory activities and mindful meditations--invitations which will assist you in slowing down, relaxing, reconnecting with nature, awakening your senses, and being present. You will have time and space to experience and connect with the forest, with yourself, and with others. We close the session with a tea ceremony and a tasty bite. We usually cover no more than one mile along a local trail, and so unless a walk's description says otherwise, it is welcoming and adaptable for all.
Forest Therapy also enjoys a long list of scientifically-backed benefits for our bodies, minds, and psyches. Read on below for stories and research!
