Virtual/Remote Forest Bathing

Virtual/Remote Forest Bathing

Feb 21, 2024 | 10:30 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.

Victoria, BC, Canada

Come Forest Bathing from inside your own home, in a garden or or on a balcony - from anywhere in the World! Using Zoom you can dial in from your phone or computer for free over video or audio. Through a series of 'invitations', I will guide you slowly, intentionally, and mindfully to move through your indoor or outdoor landscape in way that cultivates presence, opening all the senses. Actively communicate with the land and connect with others, wherever you are, over 1.5 hours. You can step away from your screen, if you prefer, and simply follow the gentle invitations as you listen to my voice from your phone or computer. These online gatherings invite you to participate from a safe and familiar outdoor space near you, such as your garden, a local park or a nearby greenspace.  If you're unable to leave your home, you can participate by looking outside through your window, sitting next to an indoor plant, or gathering items that represent nature to you, such as rocks,  seashells, favorite images of nature, herbs, fruits and vegetables, wooden objects, etc. We will share our experiences with the group after each invitation. Silence is also a means of sharing, and no outcomes are expected. If you use the Zoom video link, you may call in on your phone or from your computer. You join by dialing in using a phone number, or use your data or internet connection. D‍ownload the Zoom app for your phone or computer here: https://zoom.us/. Comfort: For those who will be outside, I suggest that you dress a little warmer than usual since you will be moving slowly and possibly sitting on the ground. Having a small mat, bag, or cushion to sit on can also be nice. For those of you inside, I suggest sitting near a plant(s) and/or a window with a view outside, if possible. I will be sharing my view, so you can "experience" the outdoors through your screen as well. Zoom Tips and Etiquette: Please practice Group Etiquette by keeping your phone on mute unless invited to share. On Zoom, in the bottom  of your screen, there is a little microphone. Click on it to mute or unmute yourself. In order to ensure the best experience for everyone, please commit to fully participating while you are on the group call and refrain from answering texts or emails. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Remotely-guided Nature Immersion - via Zoom

Remotely-guided Nature Immersion - via Zoom

Feb 24, 2024 | 09:30 A.M. - 10:30 A.M.

Bucks County, PA, USA

Let's slow down for a moment, immerse ourselves in the wonder of the natural world, and gather some tranquility to bring back into our busy lives. Let's forge a deeper connection with nature and our inner selves and rediscover the joy of simply ‘being’, instead of constantly ‘doing’. Join me for a remotely guided nature immersion where we'll journey together to experience a deep, sensory connection with the natural world around us. The nature immersion experience is inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku (“Forest Bathing”), a research-based practice known to boost immune strength, reduce stress, and improve cognitive function, all while helping us feel more connected – to each other, to the natural world around us, and to ourselves. The magic of this immersion, guided from afar, is that it takes place in your chosen natural space – a local park, a garden or greenhouse (especially nice as an escape from the cold winter weather), or the familiar comfort of your own yard. All you need is a view of the natural world and a device (with connection to the internet). Many participants of remote immersions have commented that they appreciated being able to connect with nature in their own backyards – without the need to drive to a different location, and allowing them to have daily reconnection with the newfound friends of the natural realm in their yard. It's amazing how a familiar spot outdoors can suddenly feel like a new world, ready to be explored with fresh eyes. As your guide on this journey, I’ll offer a series of simple, yet profound ‘invitations’ to allow you to slow down, sink into the moment, and intentionally interact with the natural world around you. Then we’ll come back as a group to share our experiences. Sharing is totally optional, though. There are no expectations of specific outcomes, just a shared journey of discovery, before we are invited once again to each explore further, alone yet together, in our chosen corners of the world.

Feb 24, 2024 | 02:00 P.M. - 04:30 P.M.

9135 Willeo Road
Roswell, GA 30075, United States

Guided Forest Bathing is an opportunity to connect to Nature and experience CNC in a new way. During this gentle 2½ hour ramble, we will balance wandering with rest, facilitated group gatherings, and solo time. Your guide will offer invitations, or suggestions, for safely engaging with Nature through our senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell. With no expectations or goals, this is an opportunity to slow down, unplug, destress, and practice presence in the moment. We quite literally “come to our senses” and deepen our connection to Nature, ourselves, and each other. Inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, which translates to “forest bathing,” this is a sensory immersion, a chance to soak in the therapeutic benefits of being present in Nature (no water required!).

Feb 24, 2024 | 05:30 P.M. - 07:30 P.M.

301 N Baldwin Ave
Arcadia, CA 91007, USA

Forest Bathing under a FULL MOON gives us an unparalleled opportunity to navigate with senses less dominant than our eyesight. We attune to and then let ourselves be guided by our more subtle senses: scent, sound, touch and intuition. We will move about this spectacular garden at night after it is closed to the general public. The time of the full moon offers us opportunity to see and to celebrate the myriad ways that the moon, the stars and the night sky can guide and influence us. The evening will incorporate an ever-varying combination of sound making and healing, forest bathing and nature immersion, reiki, and astrology.

Dream Acres Alpacas

Feb 27, 2024 | 12:00 P.M. - 01:30 P.M.

5590 Ontario 101
Monteith, ON, Canada

A 1-hour Forest Therapy session, followed by a tour of the Alpaca farm. Find your calm then meet these gentle creatures with your senses open and ready to live fully in the experience 🦙 · 1 hour 30 minutes total · Min. 4ppl (if you don't have a group of four, contact for alternative options) Participants should arrive dressed for the weather. In Winter, this means dressing in layers and dressing warmer than you think you need to as Forest Therapy walks don’t generate a lot of body heat. Warm socks, good boots, mitts, neck warmer, and toque are a must. Hand warmers are also great! Base layer: closest to your skin, fits snuggly and helps wick moisture away. Look for wool or polyester fabrics. Mid layer: the insulating layer that keeps you warm. Stick to wool (alpaca 😉) or fleece. Outer layer: protects you from the elements like wind, rain and snow. This layer should be waterproof with enough room for layers underneath.
