What happens when we close the laptops,
put down the mobile devices,
saunter out and start listening to the trees?
Research confirms that sustained, intentional contact
with nature benefits humans through:
Improved sense of wellbeing
Lower instances of stress-related illness
Improved memory and cognitive flexibility
Expansion of creativity and problem-solving
Upcoming Forest Bathing Walks

What is forest bathing?
Forest bathing, or nature therapy, is a practice of intentionally creating thin places where people can slow down, reconnect with their senses and re-awaken to the sacred that permeates all of creation.
In nature therapy, the forest is the therapist and the guide opens the doors. People are gently guided through a clearly defined sequence of invitations to slow down, allow the senses to open, and experience the environment to deepen a reciprocal relationship between participants and the forest. This supports the wholeness and well-being of both.
We are all connected,
human and more-than-human,
in an infinite loop of reciprocity.
When the natural world thrives,
we all thrive.
The golden thread running through my life’s journey is a persistent calling to find, as Frederick Buechner describes, the place where my deep gladness meets the world’s deep hunger. I hope that this offering will be one in which we can flourish and discern together how best to live into that fiercely tender calling.
