About The Event
The world's most experienced forest therapy guide trainers invite you to join a growing global movement and an activist community that is making a difference--by rebuilding the relationships between people and the more-than-human-world of nature.
A Forest Therapy Guide facilitates safe gentle walks, providing instructions—referred to as “invitations”—for sensory opening activities along the way. These walks follow a standard sequence. Each walk begins with establishing embodied contact with the present moment and place. Next come a series of connective invitations, often improvised in the moment and adapted to the needs of participants. These may be followed by wander time and/or sit spot. The walks end with a ceremony of sharing tea made from foraged local plants.
