These sessions serve as an intimate introduction to or reconnection with wellness practices at Silvae Spiritus Northwoods Nature Retreat or one of our local, regional, state, and National parks as well as Nature Centers and Arboretums. We guide participants with a focus toward fostering a sense of community with the session participants and the more-than-human world. Our Community Sauna Sessions follow the thermic bathing traditions of hot, cold, rest, rehydrate, repeat, and are most closely aligned with the Finnish style of sauna practice. Our Public Walks follow the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs’ “Standard Sequence,” include specialized invitations tailored to the forest, the group, and the weather conditions, and are open to anyone who would like to register to join.
