Bethany Kilgore

Step into the great outdoors and let me be your guide! I'm a certified forest bathing guide recognized by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. Forest bathing is like a walking meditation in nature, where I help people slow down, reconnect with their senses, and rejuvenate their minds and bodies. Pretty amazing, don't you think? If you're interested in trying forest bathing, check out my upcoming walks for 2024. I collaborate with ExploreMore DFW, where you can find information about my monthly guided walks. For more updates, follow me on my Facebook or Instagram @firstnatureexperience.  For media inquiries or quotes on private or group guided walks, you may contact me at info@firstnatureexperience.com

NOTE: This event is exclusively reserved for the Hikerbabes DFW Chapter. Also, please use the address listed for this location to ensure we all meet at the proper location for this experience. Come see what forest bathing is all about! Previous participants have said "it's a gentle awakening to the beauty around you" and it helped them "de-stress and relax." During the 2 hour experience, Bethany will guide you through various invitations, using your senses as you slowly find unique ways to connect with nature. Portions of the experience will involve sitting and light walking (no more than 1 mile). Not sure what Forest Bathing is? Quite simply, it's an opportunity to connect with nature through your senses. If you're looking for a little self-care weekend, this is a great opportunity to reset your nervous system. Previous participants have shared that they've felt more peaceful, centered, and creative after participating in forest bathing. What can you expect? - An introduction to the park we're visiting - Slowly walking on a shaded trail; no more than 1 mile total round-trip - A series of invitations to explore nature through a variety of our senses, which are focused on slowing down to give our bodies and brains a break. - Moments of sharing and listening. Opportunities to share what you're noticing and listen to others' observations. During these group circles, it's not required that everyone participate by sharing. - Iced tea (offered by your guide) to close out the experience What should you bring? Pants and trail/hiking shoes recommended as we will be walking through a portion of Dayspring Nature Preserve. In addition, bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray. You may want to consider bringing a small blanket or towel should you prefer to sit for some parts of this practice.
