Nature / Forest Therapy (Shinrin-Yoku) 

Forest Therapy is a gentle practice that involves moving very slowly and mindfully through nature while soaking it in with all of our senses. It is a relaxing experience that connects people to their natural environment through sensory-based invitations. As a certified Guide, your session follows National Nature and Forest Therapy Guidelines for enhanced benefits.  


Studies show the further we get away from nature the higher our stress levels. 


Benefits include:  

  • Decreased risk of heart attack

  • Decreased inflammation

  • Mood-boosting (de-stressor)

Details  The sessions last approximately 3.5 hours.  I'll offer you invitations to experience and be with nature through your senses.  I am constantly amazed how nature always seems to provide what the participants need on that day. As a certified guide, we say that we merely open the door. 


                I'd love to introduce you and/or your group to this experience.
