ECO-THERAPY & Nature Based Healing 

"Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt." -John Muir

Nature offers invitations and opportunities to return to our wild, primal, natural home. Within that space, a sense of safety and peace can be restored that allows for deep healing work, mystical experiences, spiritual exploration, and much-needed rest.

 

Different from traditional counseling, nature-based healing is about stepping out of mental processing and into a soulful, intuitive experience with the natural world. These encounters can provide insight, wisdom, and guidance only accessible to us when leave the comfort of the indoors and engage with the wild.
 

If you feel the call of the wild, are craving extended time in nature, or are curious about a different approach to healing or recovery, let's talk. An Eco-Therapist or Transpersonal Guide can provide the support you need to lean into these practices and feel safe enough to explore the winding trails, both in the forest as well as within yourself.

Working together can take many forms, depending on your intentions and schedule. The offerings below as well as customized packages are available.

Nature-Based Counseling

Simply being in nature instead of an office provides an abundance of additional benefits, even more so if you are barefoot (optional, but highly recommended!). For example, only 30 minutes of foot-to-earth contact calms the nervous system, improves blood pressure, reduces inflammation, deepens breathing, and increases energy. For some it can even lessen menstrual pain and improve sleep. Nature-based counseling is available in 1, 2- and 3- hour increments.

Wonder Walks & Forest Bathing

Wander. Saunter. Meander. A Wonder Walk is not about how far you can hike or how many Instagram-worthy photos you can capture. Instead, this forest-bathing experience is the opportunity to intimately reconnect with yourself and nature, tune into your senses, and experience deep relaxation. A blend of gentle activities, mindfulness practices, and reflection create a wonder-filled journey. Walkabouts can take place in city or state parks, hiking areas, or even in your backyard.

"Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild...is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself." -Edward Abbey
