Jesse, doula, educator and Forest Therapy Guide grew up in deep forests of N. California & Oregon and found her own healing here. Her practice and retreat land Mother Tree, has integrated nature therapy practices to assist relaxation techniques and wellness generated by time in nature. She now supports groups from all "walks" of life to receive the benefit of these healthful principles.
We will depart from Mother Tree and move through established trails on Powell Butte. Wear comfortable clothes, walking shoes and bring a bag with a water bottle, bug spray and light snack.
This is a mindful practice so we ask you not to use your phones. The Guide will take photos along the way and timekeep. On the way back there will be time to take photos if you choose.
