  • Such a beneficial experience! Susan's tours are great to reset your priorities and reconnect with nature and people who love nature. Even for those of us who think we spend time plenty of time in nature, a guided experience like this reveals so much more and is a heart opening, heart warming joy. Highly recommended. Thank you, Susan xx

  • I have always enjoyed meditation as well as nature. Shinrin-yoku forest therapy effectively combines the two. It is easy enough to find pleasure in being surrounded by nature. But having a guide like Susan to hone my ability to appreciate things in greater detail and with a greater sense of the moment was extremely beneficial. I found myself appreciating the texture, shape and colour of my surroundings in ways that would not have occurred to me had my attention not been drawn to them by Susan. There are similarities to mindfulness meditation which also benefits from being learned from a professional. However, I found that forest therapy is different from meditation in one key aspect. Rather than finding peace and calm from within I felt I was absorbing it from my surroundings in a more active way than with typical meditation. It is more than just clean air and an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Shinrin-yoku is a focused experience that I felt penetrated my heart and soul and left me feeling refreshed beyond what merely a gentle walk in the forest could achieve. Thank you Susan!

  • Had an awesome experience with my mum today. Susan's introduction to Shinrin-yoku on Mt Macedon is memorable. Thanks Susan

Recently attended the Shinrin-Yoku Forest Bathing at Dandenong Ranges. It was a total mid blowing experience! Susan is an excellent guide and made the whole experience unforgettable. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thank you for the soul enriching experience with us! xx
