Come and awaken your senses, explore the beautiful natural world and bring some wonder to your day.
Forest Therapy sessions are a preventative public health practice, inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku (translates as 'immersion in the forest atmosphere') and now available world-wide.
Research shows benefits for minds and bodies. They are 2 to 3 hours in duration, slowly wandering between 1-2 kilometres in small groups.
Your guide offers gentle, immersive practices to engage all of your senses, ignite your curiosity and help you to turn off from the outside world. Sessions are conducted mostly in quietness within beautiful green spaces. Our small group Forest Therapy sessions follow a standardised sequence as based on the International Core Curriculum for Forest Therapy (ICCFT). After sessions, people feel calmer, happier and more relaxed.

Nature immersions are conducted in a wide range of natural environments, including green leafy spaces and blue watery spaces. All immersions include slow wandering and a range of practices to sink into what nature is offering. These may include guided mindfulness of natural elements, exploring the scents and textures of our surroundings or co-creating nature-inspired art forms. Your guide supports you to connect with nature and to connect with yourself. Immersions are between 1-3 hours and we wander up to 2 kilometres.
