Nature therapy is inspired by the practice of Shinrin Yoku (or forest bathing) from Japan. With a focus on slowing down and awakening the senses, our guided invitations help you relax and become present, making room for listening and reflection, for quiet and accepting presence, and for inquiry through all the senses, in a nonjudgmental setting. Put simply, it is mindfulness in nature. Each experience usually lasts 3 hours and walking slowly, no more than a kilometre. You will walk away feeling more relaxed, connected with the natural world, and a boost to your immune system. Forest bathing has many other physical, mental, social and spiritual health benefits demonstrated by scientific studies. The forest is the therapist, the guide just opens the door. It is not unusual for participants to walk away with profound discoveries through strengthened relationships with themselves, others people and the more-than-human world.
