Meet us in the forest to remember
the whole of who you are.
Forest Therapy extends an open-ended invitation for growth through a committed practice that connects participants with the natural world. No person’s experience is mandated or predetermined. The outcome of your session is determined by your connection and unique interaction with the forest around you. Forest Therapy is, at its core, a routine development of the deepening, meaningful reciprocal relationship in which the forest and participant support a universal wholeness and well-being for each.
Forest Bathing—known as Shinrin-Yoku in Japan—and Forest Therapy are often used interchangeably and describe a slow, sensory walk in nature. In the practice of Forest Therapy, there is a defined sequence of guided events that provides structure to the experience, while embracing the many opportunities for creativity and guidance offered by the forest and the personal style of each guide.
The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy framework embodies the most widely-used approach to Forest Therapy worldwide. Descending into nature involves more than disconnecting from the noise and distractions of modern life. It means more than simply calming the mind and body. It offers one the opportunity to open to the healing properties of nature by reconnecting to the More-than-Human World.
