Thank you.

This was was just what I needed, and I am still enjoying the slowdown and being aware.

A nature walk with Joy is a great way to practice self-care. It reminds you of the natural resources that are here for each of us to slow down and increase gratitude and presence.

What to Expect during a Forest Therapy Walk

  • In the practice of forest therapy, Nature is the therapist, and I am a guide.

  • We begin by intentionally slowing down and then we slow down some more.

  • The pace is slow and the distance is short to allow your awareness to shift.

  • The walk gently guides you through a series of invitations to connect deeply with your senses and build a reciprocal relationship with the natural world. 

  • Each invitation is followed by an opportunity to reflect. 

  • While 90min-2hr may seem like a long time, for most people it feels too short.
