Join me for a morning of Forest Bathing at Stanmer Park! We will be opening with a small guided meditation and then doing a series of mindfulness-based activities designed to awaken the senses and explore your connection with nature. The community space we will be using has a lovely fire pit, so we will be concluding our session around a campfire with a small tea ceremony.
Please bring some water and something to sit on at the end of the walk (e.g. small blanket or sitting mat). If it rains the walk will still go ahead so please dress appropriately. There are no toilets on site, but the space is not that far from the One Garden cafe, which is a 5-10 minute walk away.
Each walk is different and the activities will depend on what the forest is offering us that day, but everything can be adapted to suit what feels comfortable for you. Please let me know if you have any mobility concerns ahead of the walk, so that I can plan a suitable route.
Please note that attendees under the age of 18 must have a guardian with them. The recommended minimum age for the session is 13-14.
Please note that unfortunately this session is not dog-friendly. Although I love dogs, the activities are designed to really slow down and tune into your body and unfortunately dogs may provide a distraction to yourself and other participants.
We will meet at the entrance to One Garden 15 minutes before the start time.

The practice of forest bathing encourages you to slow down, relax and reconnect with nature by quieting the mind and awakening the senses. We're looking forward to supporting your recharge in the stunning environment of Pisgah National Forest just one hour outside of Asheville and near Brevard, NC.
Join Christa Hebal, Kelly Bruce, or Dr Mattie Decker, ANFT certified forest therapy guides, for a relaxing 2.5-hour stroll in our stunning Blue Ridge Mountains. Through a series of invitations, you’ll have the opportunity to be present in the moment, deepening your connection with nature and community, and enjoying the many gifts nature has to offer. Inspired by Shinrin-Yoku, the Japanese art of immersing oneself in a forest environment, forest bathing walks invite our guests to spend time in nature in a way that invites healing for ourselves, our fraught ecosystems, and our community. It is true nature therapy! The walk culminates in a tea ceremony with snacks.
Prefer a private experience? Private walks are available daily, year-round, with advance notice. Please reach out anytime with questions or requests. We're looking forward to seeing you soon!
Join us for this immersive forest experience where you consciously take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the forest. It’s not about doing anything strenuous or getting your heart rate up — rather, the point is to slow down and fully experience in your own individual way what the forest has to offer.
Our walk will last from two to two and a half hours. With Certified Forest Therapy Guide Doug Jones’ guidance, we’ll wander along the paths of the Pine Community Park, stopping every so often for invitations designed to maximize being present and deepen your connection with nature.
Maybe the best thing about Forest Bathing is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. Just come as you are. No advance preparation is needed other than arriving ten minutes early for the walk and dressing appropriately for the weather.
The terrain mildly downhill. The trail is wide and well maintained. There may be muddy spots, and we will go down a short steep section. We will meet on the front porch of the Community Center. If you have mobility issues, please contact Doug in advance.
Join me for a remotely guided nature therapy session. We'll journey together into the senses to experience the natural world. You can join from anywhere - your garden, a local park, a woodland, a beach or even your living room. All you need is a view of the natural world (even if that is through a window).
I'll be guiding you from the banks of the River Arun in West Sussex, UK - helping to connect you to the nature that is in and around you.

Two hours of somatic healing and more-than-human relationship-building at Allerton (Lost Garden area). The paths are natural, rather than paved, and we do go up and down a bit, though at a very slow pace (forest therapy is not a hike). Note: this area of Allerton does not have any restroom facilities, if that is a concern for you.
I will send additional information on where to park and what to expect after registration.

Introduction to Shinrin Yoku
Could It Be That We're Invisible?
I suddenly realized that we were invisible to the people there. No one noticed us, not even as I played my flute to remind the forest bathers to drop back into presencing. No one noticed us at all.
It was then that I realized how wonderful being i
First Responders & The Forest: Ancient Meets Modern
Forests have existed for millennia. Like first responders, they offer reassurance, and by the power of their existence, help us to breathe and live. Just as first responders hold the power of life or death in their control, so too does the forest.
from "In Deep Winter":
We are in deep winter now. All is quiet in the forest. I want to know this stillness and this rest. It’s as if all the earth is calling out, “slow down now, pay attention to this wisdom from the land . . . You can do thi
