Gifting yourself moments of silence while walking through the forest allows you to find answers to difficult questions,   observe objects in nature that is representative of your life's journey and learn to identify the medicinal power of tree's and wild plants aka weeds.

Forest Bathing - Tree Medicine Plant Walk

Our afternoon starts with a quiet reflective meditative walk through the forest some call it "Forest Bathing/Healing ".   You will move slowly, focusing on your senses, quieting the mind, shifting to calm and inner peace.

On this magical journey  allow   yourself to be showered with the aromatic airborne essential oils from the native evergreen tree's that release high concentrations of "phytoncides" - which activates your body's army of white blood cells and boosting your own powerful immunity for weeks. For example, the needles of pine trees are one of the highest sources of vitamin c, antioxidants,   antiviral and antifungal.

In addition to some self reflective activities. You will be introduced to the importance of native plants for biodiversity in your diet,  and ethically sustainable harvesting practices. The day will be filled with you learning how to identify local trees and plants, learning  how to recognize their unique features, edible and medicinal properties.

Trees and humans have a very special relationship. They are the elders in the community, our teachers, friends and allies.  Trees and plants are the healers and life givers of the planet.  We need them more than they need us.

Forests  have great therapeutic benefits for our body, mind, and spirit:

  • Strengthens  cardiovascular system
  • Activates the  bodies immune system
  • Promotes  Mental Clarity  
  • Reduces: Stress, Depression, Anxiety, and Negative Emotions

"What is forest bathing? The term emerged in Japan in the 1980s as a physiological and psychological exercise called shinrin-yoku (“forest bathing” or “taking in the forest atmosphere”). The purpose was twofold: to offer an eco-antidote to tech-boom burnout and to inspire residents to reconnect with and protect the country’s forests. While Japan is credited with the term shinrin-yoku, the concept at the heart of the practice is not new. Many cultures have long recognized the importance of the natural world to human health."
