What you'll do
Forest Therapy - An ancient Japanese Practice other wise known as Shinrin Yoku . I have completed 6 months of training to offer these sessions. This is not just a typical walk in the forest... You will go deep within and connect to yourself. I invite you to awaken, to open your senses in a unique way. You will begin with a Sound Bath inside our yurts where - Participants relax, lie down on a yoga mat or sit in a chair cuddled beneath a blanket while the room is infused with a variety of musical instruments. Using Singing Bowls, flutes, drums, bells,song and a Gong to put the mind and body into deep relaxation. Following the sound bath you will be lead into the forest and be invited to participate in a variety of activities. The call of the wolf will call you back to look into your experience. These sessions can be very healing and therapeutic for all. You will have opportunity to rejuvenate your mind, restore and heal.
