I’ll guide you through little-known areas of the forest. You’ll learn to fully engage your senses with mindfulness techniques that you can use anytime, anywhere, to manage stress in the moment, stay grounded and balanced.

“I was really in tune with all the senses and wasn’t at all paying attention to where I was going…it was cool to just lose myself…”

You’ll come out of the forest feeling the peace of a spa experience not only in your body but in your emotional state as well. 

“It’s the best thing ever! It’s SO relaxing!”

Clothes stay on in this cornerstone of preventative health care and healing in Japanese medicine, called Shinrin-yoku. Started during the 1980s, it refers to soaking up the sights, smells and sounds of a natural setting. Clinical studies in Japan have shown this practice promotes physiological and psychological health.   

“It’s unbelievable the ENERGY that you get from the earth!”

You’ll only walk a little over a mile on this excursion, but you must be able to navigate uneven and hilly terrain; walking sticks may be helpful. Allow at least two hours for the session and dress in layers; the outermost layer should be something you don’t mind getting dirty.
