About the event

Experience nature like never before during this two-hour forest immersion walk. Forest Bathing (aka Forest Therapy) is gaining traction in the US and for good reason. No matter what you call it, research continues to show that spending time in nature has profound benefits to our health, both mental and physical. 

During this experience, you will be offered invitations that ignite your senses and open doors for connection with yourself and the forest. It's a practice that will get you out of your head and into your body. 

This is not a hike or exercise. It's more of here and now versus "getting there" practice. We will be walking at a very slow, comfortable pace on terrain that is mostly flat on a mix of gravel and dirt. 

Previous participants have said:

"I loved the opportunity to be able to unplug and give myself permission to be free from life."

"This experience was very relaxing"

"Take time for yourself! Slow down and enjoy nature. This experience was just what I needed."

What will the walk be like? Plan on a balance of connection with others and solitude. After a brief introduction our first invitation will be done together. Following invitations will be done on your own, followed by connection, once again, with your fellow participants. Tea and one final sharing circle will round out the experience.

This event will take place on 70 acres of private property known as The Nature Connection in Arcadia, MO. 

Don't miss out on our introductory rate of only $30/ticket! This is a one-time opportunity!

What to bring:

-Water

-Something to sit on (towel, pad, yoga mat)

-Sunscreen/Bug Spray if preferred

-Dress appropriately for being in nature and for the weather, typically one more layer than you think you need

-Snacks or anything to keep you comfortable
