Guided Forest Therapy Mini Retreats
Enjoy a series of mini-retreats that leave you feeling grounded and refreshed. Forest therapy supports healing by offering the opportunity to radically slow down, rest, take a break from technology, and to grow your capacity for connection with earth, body, and spirit. The healing impacts of forest therapy increase over time and can help you to reduce anxiety, feel more joy, and add elements of playfulness, spaciousness, and deep connection to your life. Forest therapy practice is a great complement to traditional therapy and to anyone on a healing journey who may be experiencing a life transition, burnout, relationship difficulties, or other disconnection or dis-ease. Forest therapy is also a great way for anyone to boost your sense of overall well-being and health.

What is Forest Therapy?
I was certified as a Forest Therapy Guide by the Association for Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT). I have been guiding forest therapy since 2018 and love its capacity to quickly bring participants into states of ease, calm, and connection. Forest Therapy is a slow, guided, mindful walk and series of invitations to help you slow down, awaken your senses, and connect with the earth in a deeply personal way. Our 2.5 hour forest therapy sessions take place in forests near Portland Oregon, and end with a tea ceremony and snacks. Be guided into your body and senses and into beautiful relationship with the more than human world, while also having the opportunity to share the experience in connection with a small group of other humans. I often add a reiki healing experience into Forest Therapy, as an offering for both humans and more than humans.
Forest Therapy supports healing and well being. Studies have demonstrated that forest therapy supports healthy cardiovascular and immune systems, reduces stress and anxiety, improves mood, and increases mental focus. Forest therapy works because it helps us rest our bodies and minds, but it is also a balm for the spirit by sparking our imagination, creativity, and connection to the earth.
