Every walk begins with a brief orientation about Forest Therapy, some history about the place we're walking in and anything you might want to look out for: sun, cold, bugs, plants. We tell some stories about our own experiences in nature. Then, it's time to open the senses through a series of invitations; we slow down and have some fun, based on the location and the people who are walking. You might chat with a tree, or walk like a fox to see how many other beings you can find. You may partner and play a game of camera, finding something to focus on in the forest that you'd otherwise overlook. We'll have some conversation after every invitation, sharing stories. And of course, there's some quiet time for reconnecting with nature, too, just for you. At the end of every walk, there's a tea ceremony and conversation. We'll enjoy something foraged or carried into the location, if it's an arboretum. You'll come away refreshed, calm, and peaceful.

While anyone can walk the trails at an arboretum or preserve, a Forest Therapy Guide gives you access to a different way to experience nature. Opening your senses, slowing down and noticing, as well as connecting with nature, makes Forest Therapy a profoundly more satisfying experience. It's perfect for the weary traveler or businessperson who wants to get focused or just slow down a bit.

Walks aren't about distance or effort. Sometimes, we walk less than 1/4 of a mile. A Forest Therapy walk is designed to be pleasant and easy. I provide camping stools for times when we sit and talk.
