What we're about

This is a group for those who want to explore nature in a gentle and relaxing manner. Nature and Forest Therapy walks are not taken with the primary goal of physical exercise. There is a specific intention to connect with nature - with curiosity, being present, and in a healing way. This requires mindfully moving through the land, opening all our senses, and communicating with the land.

As Nature and Forest Therapy walks are gentle explorations on trails that are mindfully chosen, it is suitable to all levels.

Most of the events offered in this group will be Nature and Forest Therapy Walks although not exclusive to it. Other events relating to wellness may be offered from time to time as well.

Forest Therapy Walk at McKenzie King Estate

Waterfall Trail Parking

In an unhurried way, allow your feet to wander. This is not about exercise. It is not about hurry. It is about being alive in all your senses and trusting that the forest, and other lands where you wander, have something to share with you. The McKenzie King Estate is a beautiful place that is at the edge of Lac Kingsmere. This place has everything - a beautiful manicured front garden, majestic trees and historic structures. This date is chosen right before the Fall Rhapsody on Oct 5. I will be looking to guide one person in this walk. As part of the practicum of the Forest Therapy Guide training with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, I invite you to experience the healing ability of the forest with me. Bring a foldable stool and perhaps some water with you. This is a rain or shine event. Note that 9:30 am is START time not ARRIVAL time. Please arrive a few minutes prior to the event. Parking is free at the Waterfall Trail.
