Embodied Imagination & Sensation

Foster deep listening, looking, and learning in a path that integrates mind, body, and spirit to reconnect your nature to nature. Remember the power and presence of nature to heal the schisms of your life. Experience the wild majesty and mystery of fallen leaves under a forest canopy that speaks of alchemy and forgotten ways to transform yourself and world.

Healing done naturally your way. 

While the skills, strategies, and concepts from different cultures are introduced, it is us up to you to embody them in your own life and way. You create self-generated rituals, meditations, and reflections. This is your path.

"I go to nature to be soothed and healed." John Burroughs

A sustainable future is rooted in the world.

As our ancestors lived in balance and appreciation of nature, we return to a life of homeostatic gratitude to offer our children a path forward into a sustainable and livable world. 
"The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all." Chief Seattle

Tools for your journey . . .

Each week is designed to lead you further into yourself and the forest. Because you are surrendering to the emergent nature of nature, the weeks are not outlined as they are in other classes. Forest Bathing does begin with the same introduction, asking you what you are willing or wanting (called) to leave behind, and it ends with the same conclusion to provide containment and integration. It is its own rite of passage.

Each week content drops down below. 

Depth + Ecopsychology = + Terra Psychology

Deep Healing
Forest bathing heals us from the depths of our being. 
Walking in the forest heals us, increasing our immunity, cognitive capacity and happiness while decreasing our stress, depression and confusion. So we walk, sit and rest.
Deep Breathing
Breathing with the trees we breathe deep.
Bathing in the energy of the forest we exchange carbon and oxygen, drinking deep in exchange with our forest friends. Breathing is as important as walking in forest bathing.
Deep Listening
Amidst the trees we listen deeply to the forest song.
Forests are still but trilling with life. You just have to slow down and be in relationship with the life around you-- Whether it is an ancient cedar tree or a small salamander..
Deep Seeing
We look into the depths and see the invisible in the forest.
Practice techniques and guidance that support financial self-care to earn what you’re worth, give generously, spend consciously, reflect your values and build a legacy.

Return home to yourself and nature.

Each week you will walk on stepping stones that connect your nature to nature through the seasons and the changes in the natural world. These steps vary without a set schedule. You will get an email when new content comes and you can engage with it or not as you feel called.
