September 12 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Forest Therapy, also known as “Shinrin-Yoku,” refers to the practice of spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, happiness, and a sense of awe. The Japanese words translate into English as “Forest Bathing” and refers to bathing in the beneficial compounds which trees emit, such as oxygen and phytoncides.
Why do I need a guide?
While it’s true that no one needs a guide to benefit from a walk in the natural world, a nature therapy guide can help unlock the door to new connection and intimacy with the environment by facilitating a series of invitations that cultivate presence, calm, and profound joy. Guides also create opportunities for people to connect with each other, to witness and be witnessed in their processes of discovery.
