What you'll do

You will be invited to enter and interact with the forest in a way that you never have before with Forest Therapy—inspired by the Japanese tradition of Shinrin Yoku translated as Forest Bathing. You will be invited towards a greater sense of wellness, a deeper connection with Nature, and insight into your own "true nature"—by awakening your senses, slowing your body, and quieting your mind.
