What you'll do

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. I will meet up with guests at the Lighthouse Park main parking lot.(transit drops of on the main road ,a 5 min walk) , then proceed with an orientation and the Forest Bathing Tour. Forest bathing is an ancient practice with scientifically proven health benefits, most notably it decreases the risk of heart attack, reduces blood pressure , stress and pulse rate and many other health benefits. I will guide people for 2.5 hours of Forest Bathing in the forest at Lighthouse park.

The present lighthouse was constructed in 1912 replacing an earlier lighthouse from 1875.
