Spend Tuesday mornings enjoying a guided Forest Therapy walk


Forest Therapy/Shinrin-yoku is a practice of spending time in nature or forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, well-being, and happiness. There is a specific intention to connect to the landscape by mindfully moving in ways that cultivate presence, sensory awareness, and nature communication.

Cultivate fascination and gratitude for the natural world by engaging in a regular nature practice. Awaken your senses to new noticings and settle deeper into ease with each walk as you reduce stress and let go of time and expectations.

Experience the healing air, sounds, sights, and sensations of the forest and connect to the cycles of nature as you enjoy a slow paced, guided walk traveling less than one mile on maintained trails.

Please dress appropriately for the outdoors and different types of weather.  You may need water, insect repellent, hat, etc, and anything else to make your experience comfortable.


Walks will take place once a month on Tuesdays
June 19,  July 17,  August 14,  Sept 25,  Oct 23

$22 per walk or $60 for 3 walks

Marie will be your Forest Therapy Guide. She has an enduring appreciation for nature as an artistic canvas of seasonal beauty. She wants to celebrate and share this wonder with others through Shinrin-yoku to cultivate fascination, gratitude, and respect within the heart. In this wonderful experience of connecting through the senses, the cycles of life, inside and outside, are revealed and our place within them is discovered. Marie will guide you to find peace within the natural rhythms of the planet and universe.
