 Take an Immersive Walk in the Forest with a Guide

For millennia our  ancestors had a close connection to nature.  Sadly this has been largely severed as people become increasingly isolated from the natural world.  It’s perhaps not surprising then that research shows being in nature, particularly forests, improves health, creativity and concentration.

 

Some scientists have even discovered that the concept of an ‘internet’ is not new.  Trees have had an internet for millions of years.  So what’s Nature’s internet like?  Can humans somehow ‘log-on’? 

 

Perhaps a slow walk submerging ourselves in the forest will further enhance the benefits of spending time in nature. Please join me on a walk to explore these and other ideas.

Immersive experiences in nature include forest immersion (forest therapy) walks, nature walks, night walks, and photography walks and more.  I am happy to work with you to design a walk that meets you needs!

Everyone is Welcome!

The forests, mountains, lakes and oceans are our ancestral homes.  I believe they are part of your home regardless of race,  gender, religion,  sexual orientation,  or culture.  My heart tells me this: and I am absolutely certain nature would agree. If you are interested in coming on a walk; then I am delighted to be your guide. 

 

Mobility Issues

Forest therapy 'walks' can be adapted.  If you or a person in your party has mobility or other issues; contact me directly and we can make adjustments. There are accessible trails in the area.  It is also possible to do a "walk" from a static location and even inside if that is the best alternative.

For more information about the health benefits visit the Association of Forest and Therapy Guides and Programs Science page.
