An introduction to forest therapy
Why do I need a certified guide?
A certified forest therapy guide is trained to facilitate slow and mindful walks in nature. Guides are familiar with the trails, have Wilderness First Aid certification, and open the doors for each participant to have a safe and sensory experience.
From the guided experience, participants will gain a restored feeling of love and respect for the land, along with a series of sensory invitations to practice at home.
In 2022, Megan received her nature and forest therapy certification from The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. (https://www.natureandforesttherapy.earth).
“By focusing on my senses, it helped me get grounded on my forest walk and reminded me of the vast energy and support at my fingertips while releasing stresses of daily life.”
TRY SOMETHING NEW
“If someone has tried meditation or mindfulness and feels like “they can’t do it”, they should try a forest therapy walk.“
“Megan made me feel safe and cared for on the forest therapy walk. She offered prompts along the way to help me leave the bigger world behind to be truly present. I connected not only to nature but also to my deeper self.”
