Join us for a forest therapy walk!

Forest therapy is a simple, guided outdoor experience designed to support health and wellness through immersion in natural environments. Forest Therapy has proven physical and mental health benefits.

A forest therapy walk is a gentle, open ended sensory practice that tends to adapt organically to the needs of the participant. Walks can be fun, playful, reflective, profound, simple, funny, or provide opportunities for grief. As a practice, the experience tends to resist conventional description.

During each walk, a certified forest therapy guide offers invitations to deepen sensory experience and facilitate interaction with nature. If you've ever been a child, jumped in a pile of leaves, looked under rocks for cool bugs, or noticed a distinctive tree, you can do forest therapy. There's no wrong way, and lots of "right" ways to do it. Nothing is mandatory, and no particular outcome is expected. Everything is welcome. Immersions typically end with tea made from wild-harvested forest herbs and snacks.

Come try it out and see for yourself!
