Private Forest Ecotherapy Session
Learn how to listen deeply to, and learn from, the forest!
A Forest Ecotherapy session is a very special guided nature experience with the intention of creating, deep, embodied life-time connections with woodland and forest ecosystems for healing for the mind, body, heart and spirit. We approach nature as a resource—not a resource to take from, but a resource of ecological wisdom—a living system of conscious beings and elements with whom to re-establish bonding relationships—allyships. Together we will engage with the forest through not only the Five Senses of Seeing, Hearing, Smelling, Touching, and Tasting, but also through full body contact and the intuitive senses. We will also expand our ecoliterate knowledge learning the names and characteristics of some of the forest inhabitants (trees being the wisdom keepers as they are often the keystone species), including some traditional ethnobotany.
Your personalized individual or group session may be relaxing, awakening, or even playful, and is held within a container of intention, offering and gratitude for reciprocal mending between us as humans and the more-than human world.
Note that Forest Ecotherapy does not take the place of clinical medical or psychological treatment, but is complimentary to it.
