Picture your days filled with the soothing embrace of daily:

 

Forest Bathing,

Engaging Workshops,

Restorative Yoga,

Yoga Nidra,

and enlightening discussions.

You can rest easy knowing that we've got everything covered for you - from meals lovingly prepared to carefully scheduled activities, all you need to do is show up, and we'll take care of the rest

But it doesn't stop when the retreat ends. Your transformation is an ongoing process. We're here to help you integrate your newfound insights into your daily life. Think  self-care practices and meaningful rituals that will serve as your compass on this continuous voyage.

You'll also have the chance to participate in our monthly Naturepause sessions, maintaining the serenity and growth you've uncovered during your retreat experience.

  • What is Forest Bathing?
    Forest Therapy is a research-based practice for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments taking in all in through our senses. Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition. Forest Bathing is good for both physical and mental well-being. It is proven to reduce stress hormone production, improve feelings of happiness and free up creativity.
  • Terms and conditions
    To secure your spot, a reservation fee of $200 is required, and the remaining balance must be paid by 12/10/23.

However, if you find yourself in extenuating circumstances and need to cancel, I may be able to issue a partial refund (minus a 20% administration fee) on a case-by-case basis if I can re-book your spot.

In case of severe weather conditions the retreat will be rescheduled.
