Guide Community

We believe that communities who gather, thrive. To that end, we have been hosting annual gatherings since 2019 for Minnesota guides and guides-in-training from all certifying organizations. We invite you to connect through facilitated circle sharing, refine your practice through professional development workshops, and relax over casual shared meals and sauna sessions. Whether your guiding focus is Forest Bathing, Nature and Forest Therapy, Shinrin-Yoku, Eco-Therapy, Morning Altars, or any other nature-relation modality, you belong here!

The events are always free. Donations toward operating costs are gratefully accepted, but never expected.
