|| Forest Bathing ||

the medicine of simply being in nature

ˈsil vaɪ ˈspɪrɪtʊs – Latin, “the breathing of the forest”

We provide guided Nature and Forest Therapy walks – deeply immersive invitations to engage all of your senses in the naturally restorative and healing environment. 

Crafted to refresh, reconnect, and revitalize, our walks are an antidote to the pace and distraction of modern life; an opportunity to:

*slow down;
*unplug from technology;
*allow Nature to invigorate our immune and cardiovascular systems;
*bring a sense of grounded equilibrium to our mental health;
*reintroduce us to our balance in the ever-changing world.

Inspired by the Japanese art & science of Shinrin-Yoku (a research-based practice translating as “Forest Bathing” or “taking in the forest with all of one’s senses”), which seeks to explore the physiological, cognitive, and emotional benefits gained through time spent in this manner – our approach integrates the scientific insights gained over nearly 40 years of rigorous Japanese government-sanctioned study, ancient wild-tending methods practiced for millennia by indigenous peoples worldwide, and our certification through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs.  

Come walk with us; all are welcome here.
