The medicine of being in the forest

Forest Therapy, also known as “Shinrin-Yoku,” refers to the practice of spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness.  The Japanese words translate into English as “Forest Bathing.”. What we see by forest therapy is spending time in nature in a way that invites healing interactions. There is a long tradition of this in cultures throughout the world. It’s not just about healing people; it includes healing for the forest too. Here’s just a few guidelines we use to define and practice forest therapy:

  • Setting specific intentions for connecting with nature & using all our senses mindfully: Sight, Smell, Hearing & Touch to actively communicate with the land and all beings, including animals & plants.
  • Each session lasts around 3 to 4 hours, it’s not a hike, this is about will observing & taking notes, immerse ourselves in the magical experience without being rushed.
  • We learn to let the land and its messages penetrate into our minds and hearts more deeply.

Also, a New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle & a fresh start. This is your chance to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest in your life. This is a time to create the opportunities and mindsets you wish in your life, a time to create sacred space for yourself. Our 6 day New Moon retreat is about choice for yourself, a place where an energetic yoga practice & meditation clears your aura of negative emotions and brings back shine in your life.

  • Twice Daily yoga  & meditation sessions
