Forest Bathing Life Program
6-Week Summer Cohort Begins August 30th!
As a certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide since 2014, I have guided hundreds of people on forest bathing walks in VT and NYC, guided in a “Forest Bathing Room” and have developed on-line experiences with over 1,400 students from around the globe. It is my absolute pleasure to be offering this Forest Bathing Life program in my home state of Vermont.
Humanity is facing a global crisis which in my view stems from our disconnection to the natural world. Many of us suffer from a “nature deficit” as we spend more and more time indoors. An average American spends 90% indoors. Think of your typical day. Between your home, car and place of work, what percentage is outdoors? With time in nature decreasing, many of us are suffering from stress and anxiety. And with stress comes inflammation: the root of so many ailments and illnesses. It’s not your fault! The overall design of our lives within this construct we have collectively created as a modern society has forced us to prioritize issues and matters unrelated to our health in relationship to nature. It is now more common knowledge to recognize corporate logos than it is to know the different species of trees around us.
We must break free of this cycle! I know you understand that nature feels good and is good for you. What you need is a practice, a guide and a community to help you walk the talk of nature appreciation. So much of nature connection is time. TIME logged outdoors and being in a special state of mind. I want to guide you to create a different routine, a different way of seeing and interacting with the world. There is so much awe, so much simplicity, complexity, beauty and intrigue waiting for you to discover. The practice of forest bathing is the path that awaits you.
This program is designed to deepen your relationship to the natural world by establishing and integrating the practice of Forest Bathing into your daily life. Would you like to connect to nature while taking care of their wellbeing while combating feelings of stress and anxiety? Are you ready to take the steps towards feeling more peace and connection with nature this transformative practice? Then this is your time!
This 6-week program can be done in-person in Vermont or remotely anywhere in the world with an online and mobile app accessible curriculum. By taking this program, you will commit to directing your awareness towards nature every day for the 6 weeks to create long lasting change.
