LOCATION: We start at Inspiration Point in Presidio Park in San Francisco with striking views of the Bay, Alcatraz and Angel Islands. We then descend to the Ecology trail and the Redwood Forest before making our way to El Polin Springs.

I would love to have your company as we explore what's alive in our inner and outer worlds. We'll hone our senses in ways that often lie dormant. Senses and sensations that have often been forgotten in this modern world. These hidden abilities can be reawakened within us. We'll explore this when we next bathe together in the essence of the forest. Come immerse your senses both active and ancient with our next walk as we explore what wants to be awakened within you.

"You didn't come into this world. 
You came out of it, like a wave from the ocean. 
You are not a stranger here." 
Alan Watts

Come immerse yourself amongst friends. Simply being out in nature provides a healing, grounded and connective experience. The practice of Shinrin-Yoku or Forest Bathing fosters a deeper more intentional connection to our roots with nature and to ourselves. 

Research that started in Japan and continues around the world including locally at places like Stanford continues to prove the direct relationship between time spent in nature and our health.

Just a few of the scientifically-proven benefits of Shinrin-yoku include:
***Boosted immune system functioning***
***Reduced blood pressure***
***Improved mood with reduced stress and cortisol levels***
***Increased energy levels and enhanced ability to focus***
***Improved sleep***

Opening our senses to nature also develops our intuition. We learn to connect in new ways to the world around us increasing our energy flow and our overall sense of happiness. Over the course of 3.5 hours you'll experience a series of invitations allowing you to experience nature as you never have before. In between these invitations we'll use the Way of Council for group interactions so we can learn from each other as we discuss what we are experiencing in connection with nature. We conclude with a tea ceremony where we literally drink in the essnce of the forest.

MEET YOUR GUIDE: Gregg has worked in healthcare as a paramedic and an RN from Florida to Alaska. With extensive training in wilderness medicine, he has traveled as far as Central America to be medical support for others in their enjoyment of nature. He brings his compassionate heart with his care for the natural world and the humans that inhabit it in combination with nearly 3 decades of leading people on wilderness explorations. He has been a sea kayak instructor around the country and beyond and has written extensively on the subject. He has been a naturalist and taught courses for Prescott College both in California and the Sea of Cortez, Mexico on marine ecology, leadership and mentoring. Gregg's knowledge of health and healing gained from his years of working as a paramedic and an RN, mindfulness practices, wildlife rescue and meld with his training in Shinrin-Yoku to bring you an immersive sensorial experience in deep nature connection.

November 19th Nature Immersion - Shinrin Yoku Forest Connection

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/november-19th-nature-immersion-shinrin-yoku-forest-meander-tickets-39860171847

It turns out spotting the elusive alligator amongst the California Redwoods is exceedingly rare. And yet we will be using our senses in unique ways so who knows what "you" might discover. Scouting a trail for a recent walk, a Red tailed hawk flew directly over my head. Shortly thereafter a coyote listening intently to the ground suddenly sprang into the air, pouncing upon a gopher emerging from it's burrow, a vole gathered and ate grasses at my feet, Redwood trees towered overhead and flowers showed off their colors. Myriad songbirds sang from the trail in front of me and searched for a meal in the nearby trees. What treasures await us on our next exploration? Come commune with nature as we explore what's alive in our inner and outer worlds.

LOCATION: http://tinyurl.com/nov19walk

Like trees dropping their leaves, the fall season gives us the opportunity to let go of what no longer serves us making way for something new. Whether your looking to release something old, embrace something new or simply connect to the land, come play, heal and simply be in the forest with us this Sunday. We'll hone our senses in ways that often lie dormant. Senses and sensations that have often been forgotten in this modern world. These hidden abilities can be reawakened within us. We'll explore this when we next bathe together in the essence of the forest.

Research that started in Japan and continues around the world including locally at places like Stanford continues to prove the direct relationship between time spent in nature and our health.

Just a few of the scientifically-proven benefits of Shinrin-yoku include:
***Boosted immune system functioning***
***Reduced blood pressure***
***Improved mood with reduced stress and cortisol levels***
***Increased energy levels and enhanced ability to focus***
***Improved sleep***

Opening our senses to nature also develops our intuition. We learn to connect in new ways to the world around us increasing our energy flow and our overall sense of happiness. Over the course of 4 hours you'll experience a series of invitations allowing you to experience nature as you never have before. In between these invitations we'll use the Way of Council for group interactions so we can learn from each other as we discuss what we are experiencing in connection with nature. We conclude with a tea ceremony where we literally drink in the essnce of the forest.

"You didn't come into this world. 
You came out of it, like a wave from the ocean. 
You are not a stranger here." 
Alan Watts

THE EXPERIENCE: Our next Shinrin Yoku walk is Saturday November 19th. Come immerse yourself amongst friends in this taster version of our longer walks. Simply being out in nature provides a healing, grounded and connective experience. The practice of Shinrin-Yoku or Forest Bathing fosters a deeper more intentional connection to our roots with nature and to ourselves.
