Connect with Yourself...

Heal through Nature...

We work in partnership with Nature to help humans connect with themselves through sensory embodiment and silence. We teach you the skills and benefits of being present, focusing your energy, slow down your mind, bring clarity to your thoughts, and experience a deeper connection with yourself and Nature.


What is Forest Bathing?

Forest Therapy is a practice. It is open-ended; there is no prescription for what a person "should" experience, or what benefits they "should" receive. Instead, it is a practice of developing a deepening relationship of reciprocity, in which the forest and the practitioner find a way to work together that supports the wholeness and wellness of each.

In Forest Therapy, there is a clearly defined sequence of guided events that provides structure to the experience, while embracing the many opportunities for creativity and serendipity offered by the forest and the individual inspiration of the guide.

Sensory Embodiment and Silence are tools to help you slow down and connect with your senses. It is through connecting with our senses that we can explore our relationship with our bodies and our environment. 


Together, we will embark on a journey that will help you come to your senses and re-connect with your inner child. Book with us and prepare for an experience you will never forget!

It is in sharing stories and knowledge that help us connect with one another, deepen our understanding of the Human-Nature connection, and empower ourselves to heal.

There is no greater agony than

bearing an untold story inside you.                                -Maya Angelou
