Forest Bathing to heal the soul
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.

Stuart picked us up in North Van and brought along hot Chai tea with salmon sandwiches for lunch. I did not need to worry about driving, maps or road detours as could enjoy the day. Our stops were Lighthouse Park, Whytecliff Park, Howe Sound, Porteau Cove where we saw sea lions, Shannon Falls, Squamish and Brackendale. His hikes were easy and happy, we were hiking and not just in car the entire day. Then, he gave us a short tour of North Van and recommended the sea bus for downtown visits, and back home. Wonderful day!! thank you
Wonderful nature experience to start a day with in Vancouver. The forest is lush, very soothing, an oasis where to the feel the power of the “now”. Stuart is a great guide while exploring the Mundy Trails, explaining the surroundings and philosophy about life. Thank you!
Spending the day seeing some of the most beautiful and natural places around Vancouver was an incredible experience. Having Stuart as our guide made it fun and magical. I would definitely recommend this day trip to anyone visiting or even living in the area. Hiking, magnificent views, stories and nature therapy, Stuart’s tour is absolutely delight.
This is a nature walk to allow you to enjoy Canadian spirit and sync yourself with nature
A good way to see the area with a knowledgeable host. Stuart will customize and has a great knowledge of the parks and history. even in the rain it was great.
Stuart gave my family and I a great day! He was thoughtful, made little customizations to accommodate us, had great primary and add on locations along the way, knew a lot about the forest, great conversationalist and very safe driver!
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!
