What we're about

Bi-weekly meetups to take time out and heal using the ritual practice of Forest Bathing/Shinrin-Yoku (absorbing the environment) Deep breaths, stress relief, immune system boost, improve overall sense of well-being, somatic release through grounding and the natural vibrations of the Earth.

In Forest Therapy there is a specific intention to connect with nature in a healing way. This requires mindfully moving through the landscape to cultivate presence, open the senses, and actively communicate with the land. It is best seen as a practice, not a one-time event. Developing a meaningful relationship with nature occurs over time, and is deepened by returning again and again throughout the cycles of the seasons. Core routines practices such as sit spot, place tending, and cross-species communication help in our deepening relationship between humans and the more-than-human-world.

Yoga Classes outdoors help us connect to our inner landscape while receiving health benefits from nature.
