International Forest Therapy Day Walk

AirBnB Experiences

Come walk through a series of ecosystems in San Francisco’s Presidio Park. We’ll experience views of San Francisco Bay, redwood and eucalyptus forests, open fields and wetlands near a spring. All with their own song created by the life that resides there. You’ll experience a series of invitations that guide you to connect to the land through your senses and in the process, you’ll connect more deeply with yourself and those around you. At the completion of our journey we’ll share a forest tea as we infuse our bodies with the energy of the earth.

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.

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.

November 19th Nature Immersion - Shinrin Yoku Forest Connection

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.

You are not a stranger here."
