Reconnect with yourself and nature in a mindful walk through old growth rainforests with beautiful ocean views. On every walk you will be offered a unique "forest bathing" experience, an “immersion” into the space of trees, plants and the beings of the forest. Moving slowly over a gentle landscape, the practice of forest therapy is accessible to people of all fitness levels, ages and abilities. Forest therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, or forest bathing. Shinrin-Yoku means to “bathe in the atmosphere of the forest” and is a term that was originally used by the Japanese government in the 1980”s, "to describe the practice of spending time in the woods to soak up its health benefits”. If practiced regularly, forest “bathing” can improve your health, wellness and happiness! After a walk, participants have noticed that they feel calmer, more peaceful and more relaxed. During a guided walk, we will offer you a series of “invitations” or suggestions, to help you to slow down and and connect with your senses. You are then invited to do what feels comfortable to you. We merely hold the space for the deepening and connection to happen. The forest is the therapist, and we are the guides. All guided forest therapy walks are then concluded with a final gathering, where we share tea brewed with local plants, and a light healthy snack.
