Event description

Description

To walk in nature is to witness a thousand miracles” – Mary Davis.

Known in Japan as Shinrin Yoku ("Forest Bathing"), Forest Therapy is an evidence-based practice of immersing in nature and taking in, with all of our senses, the forest atmosphere. Forest Therapy provides you with natural antidepressants, boosts your immune system and even increases your creativity and mental capabilities! That’s right, it’s evidence-based that time in nature makes you happier, healthier and smarter!

Participants on our walks report improved mood and sense of vigor, a feeling of liveliness as well as unforgettable moments of joy and happiness.

"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." Jodie


The scientifically-proven benefits of Forest Therapy include:
  • Boosted immune system functioning, with an increase in the count of the body's Natural Killer (NK) cells.
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Reduced stress
  • Improved mood
  • Increased ability to focus
  • Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved sleep

Just as impressive are the results that you will experience during Forest Therapy:

  • Deeper and clearer intuition
  • Increased flow of energy
  • Increased capacity to communicate with the land and its species
  • Increased flow of eros/life force
  • Deepening of friendships
  • Overall increase in sense of happiness

What is special about a Forest Therapy walk?


I have chosen a lush, tranquil trail of about two kilometers in the Dandenong Ranges, Victoria to rejuvenate and immerse in the medicine of the forest.
I will guide you through sensory invitations to help disconnect from the fast pace of life, technology and noise. Slow down and savor the sights, sounds, aromas, sensations and wisdom of nature.

A three-hour guided forest therapy experience invites you to step into an oasis of tranquility under a forest canopy to revitalize your mind, body, and spirit.

  • Open your heart to the nuture of nature.
  • Sink into her embrace, one step at a time.
  • Discover yourself in nature.
  • Reconnect with Nature. Nature Heals.
