Private Sessions and Walks

Private sessions are good for people seeking personal and direct guidance in deepening their connection with nature for learning, healing, general restoration, and relaxation.  Private walks will take place at a local green space and will last up to 2 hours. You can suggest a location to your guide one month in advance of the walk session otherwise the guide will choose a unique location suited to you.  Walks for 2 people are good for friends, siblings, family, and partners.

1 Person – $150.00
2 people $200.00


Businesses and Organizations:

Incorporate Forest Bathing into your event and business or organization.

Team and company wellness days are a way to facilitate wellness in the corporate world. There are so many benefits of team retreats that even smaller companies are thinking about how they get out of the office for a weekend or just for a day.  Spending connected time in nature can work wonders for your employees whether it is for new employees or a team that has been together for years!  Learn how to incorporate nature wellness into your everyday working environment. This can take place in small groups during COVID-19

Schools:

Between exams, papers and maintaining an active social life, many students feel they can’t really find the time to keep up on their personal health and wellness.  Support your students by bringing them outside and into the forest, they will have the opportunity to unplug, slow down and connect to nature. This can take place in small groups during COVID-19

FAQS:

Are the sessions physically demanding?

No, they are not physically demanding. I do offer specialty designed Forest Bathing Hiking Explorations which involve 2 to 4 hours of walking. These are clearly differentiated from my regular forest bathing sessions. With the Forest Bathing hiking, I have readapted Nature and Forest Therapy principles into Guided Hiking Excursions. Go Here to learn about this.

What should I bring?

Nothing special for the walks. Dress for the weather and being outside for 2+ hours. Bring anything unique that you need. You may want to bring a small backpack or bag to carry water and an extra clothing layer or a blanket to sit on.

How far do we walk?

Typically walks are around one half to one mile and stay in one area.

Please turn off your cell phone and device during the walk session. Thank you!
