Event description

Description

Come and experience Forest Therapy!

Forest therapy is based on the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, which can be translated to 'taking in the atmosphere of the forest' or 'forest bathing'. Common therapeutic benefits include reduced stress, heightened sensory awareness, and increased sense of place and community.

During this session, a certified Forest Therapy guide will lead you on a slow and gentle walk interspersed with invitations to pause, explore your senses, and connect with the natural world. The terrain will mainly be flat, with some mindful wandering off of maintained trails, and you will be provided with a foam pad or stool to sit on during mindfulness activities. At the end of the walk you will be treated to a wild-foraged herbal tea and a light snack.

Sliding Scale Ticket Pricing: $20 - $40

Why sliding scale pricing? I want this practice to be as accessible as possible - you are invited to choose the price that feels best for you. Those who are able to pay a higher fee help me to continue with this work in an accessible way. *If the $20 minimum listed here is a barrier for you, please contact me via rootedheart.ca.


Bring whatever you need to be comfortable outdoors for ~2.5 hours:

  • rain/snow gear including warm footware - we will carry on with the walk through light rain or snow

  • layered clothing - we will be moving slowly, and be still for periods of time, so you will feel cooler than on a hike

  • water bottle or warm drink

*Please arrive a few minutes before the scheduled start time.
