What you'll do

Do you need to de-compress, restore, renew and rejuvenate? Or just to step out and disconnect from your busy world for a few hours of self-care? We will meet in a parking area near the forest where our walk will occur. You will need to be comfortably dressed to be outdoors for 3 hours. This will not be a hike or a rigorous walk and we will not generate much heat through exertion--we will travel a total of about 1 kilometre on mostly level terrain, travelling slowly, noticing the world around us. I will offer you invitations for ways of interacting with the other-than-human world, engaging all your senses. You can choose to accept them or not! I will be asking you to turn off your phones and to not take photos until the last 10 minutes on the return journey, if you wish. At the end, I will offer a small nut-free snack. If you have any special needs or desires, just let me know!

I am a Forest Therapy Guide, certified through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, and a certified and experienced teacher, through OCT. I love taking outdoor lovers on a Forest Bathing Walk in the woods (Japanese call this 'shinrin-yoku.') , discovering nooks and crannies, waking up one's senses in the natural world while slowing down, mindfully wandering and intentionally spending time among the trees. This can have a remarkable healing effect and is an incredible antidote to our nature-starved lives.

I met with Beth after a 2 day solo road trip for my mental health and instantly felt a sense of peace and calm when I completed the Nature Bath. Beth is extremely knowledgeable in the background of Nature Bathing, where it comes from and even the acknowledgement of the land we were standing on. Beth’s kind and calming demeanour will absolutely make you feel positive. I encourage everyone to try this experience at least once!

I had an amazing time on my first forest bathing experience with Beth. She was the perfect and most gracious and accommodating guide. Knowledgeable too. Equal parts adventure and tranquility. Really great stuff. I slept like a baby the night of. I can’t wait to visit these woods again this coming fall with Beth and maybe others!

I didn’t think I was going to like this. I almost didn’t want to. But then we started. And I was into it. It was relaxing, and creative, and different in an excellent way. There was peace and quiet joy. It’s something to do for you. A gift to yourself. Beth loves what she does and it’s hard not to feel that, too. She was warm, welcoming, knowledgeable, committed, real, safe, and passionate. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and really loved not knowing exactly what to expect beforehand and what was next during. An excellent afternoon all the way around.

Going into the forest with a guide is a really unique way to experience nature. It's a rare chance to disconnect from your electronics/life challenges and reconnected with nature. This was my 3rd chance to experience forest bathing and I really appreciate Beth's gentle way of giving opportunities to fully embrace the forest. I've used some of her concepts on my own and I feel it's helped me to tilt my perspective away from the busy-ness of life and into the tranquility of nature. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to open their senses to the forest with a trained guide.
