Forest Bathing

 

Forest Bathing Tours,

What is it that feeds your soul? For me, spending time playing in nature, let me take you to the perfect place to reflect on your communication with your body, mind and spirit and help you open up to wholeness and grace. In the stillness of now familiar paths of ancient giants, I lead groups to intimately connect with their bodies. My intimate knowledge of this forest, allows me to guide participants to feel more peaceful and connected, more grounded and settled. Immersed in a practice of presence will led to a magical unfolding hidden in plain sight. I will help you notice the abundance of energy and life in the forest and how this practice can lead to peace and healing of the body.

A passion for nature and to inspire a collective response-ability to care for the land, led me to take Sustainable Community Development and a Masters in liberal Studies at Simon Fraser University. My curiosity led me to take courses that deepened my understanding of the crisis we face, and to co-create a radio program that speaks to the importance of attending to our collective responsibility of respectful coexistence. I am inviting you to journey into solitude and peaceful awareness.

If you’re looking for a great place to get away and drown the noise inside your head and anxiety you feel, I recommend taking this tour! Stuart and his wife Sylvia were amazing. Not only could I breathe physically, but mentally as well. It was beautiful. The knowledge and history shared by Stuart and Sylvia was beautiful and insightful. I highly recommend, even if it’s for a once in a lifetime thing, or if you’d love to immerse yourself into nature!
