Unique activities hosted by local experts vetted for quality

  • Forest Reiki & Intuitive Healing
    *As autumn arrives and the weather cools, please note that sessions can be held outside or in my heated indoor healing space, which is also tucked in the forest. Please let me know if you'd prefer to be inside when you book a session. Blood Moon Reiki is an energy work and intuitive guidance practice focused on reweaving interconnection with the natural world, exploring shadow self, grief work and ancestral healing. Healing is performed by the touch of my hands, allowing the flow of energy from a limitless source to you. It is extremely powerful, yet gentle energy that can be easily channeled to yourself just by intention. I also offer space to our guides, the spirits of place, and the ancestors who wish to be present. A healing session can induce an extremely comfortable state of being that can bring alteration in consciousness, support the immune system, help acute (injuries), chronic problems (asthma, eczema, headaches, etc), and aide the breaking of addictions. Please allow breathing room after your session. You will be in a nourished and grounded space, which is best suited to be supported by a nap or light walk in the woods.

  • German Shepherd Large Pack Hike
    Enjoy the true outdoors with an easy 1.5 mile private nature hike hosted by a pack of loose, well trained German Shepherd Dogs. The hike starts at our farm in coastal Maine and wanders through a network of trails winding through a natural wild Maine forest along streams and through meadows. You will be hiking with a large pack of (5 to 12) loose german shepherd dogs of various ages and they will be wanting to engage you to play and have you s or pet them. Along the walk, there will be wooden bridges over streams, soft forest trails, sometimes mud puddles and slippery footing. Throughout our adventure you will learn tips on hiking with a pack and the way they communicate and what their body language means. Once we return there will be bathroom facilities, snacks and beverages. We will also talk about how we raise and imprint our young shepherds and prepare them as family companions or for Show. Your hosts for the nature walk will be either Jennifer, Tony, Katie or all. We began offering pack walks at our open house for our German Shepherd Breeding program, and because of the enthusiasm and popularity, we decided to host this event through Airbnb. *PRIVATE TOURS CAN BE SCHEDULED* This hike is a carefully selected pack of our own German Shepherds. We do not allow visiting dogs to join on the pack hike.

  • FOREST FAIRIES with CORGIS and PONIES
    Take a rest from the stress of the modern world and get ready to fall in love with cuddly corgis and patient ponies as they take you on a unique journey to a special place where you find hidden dwellings and discover the secrets of the fairies. BlissWood Forest is located in Coastal Maine one hour south of Acadia National Park. You will arrive at Corgi Bliss, in the town of Penobscot, on the edge of the forest. There you will meet your hosts, the ponies and the corgis, along with Jennifer or Katie. Drinks will offered, as well as a discussion about safety while walking with the loose pony and corgi. we will set off on our journey through the fields, and into BlissWood Forest. The gentle easy hike is well maintained and goes at a leisurely pace. The loose corgis will be scurrying about, ahead as they sniff the ground and try to pick up the scent of pixie dust, and show you treasure chests with gems. They will show you fairy doors that suggest secret dwellings along the way. We pause a lot for selfies, kisses and cuddles from the corgis, goats and ponies. Then we loop down the trail and return to CorgiBliss and take more photos, and say our goodbyes. We will be outdoors in the fresh air and forest, wear layered clothing and shoes that protect your feet from pony steps. Enjoy the earthy smells and forest sounds, and the corgis. For safety, only our dogs can join us on this hike.
