Nature and Forest Therapy ~   Loveland Co.


Forest Therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to "forest bathing". Since the 1980's scientists in Japan started experimenting with the effect spending time in an outdoor natural setting has on the physical body. They discovered and documented amazing health benefits from lowered blood pressure and pulse rate, to decreased levels of the stress hormone Cortisol, and an increase in the amount of Natural Killer cells in the body. Since that time Forest Therapy has also been shown to boost the immune system, aid in relaxation, increase creativity, and problem solving. Come experience a walk in the woods like no other, this is not a nature walk, not an herb walk, and not a power walk. It is a walk that will saturate your senses to recharge, ground, and connect you to the healing power of Nature.


Join Minnie Kansman, a certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide, on gentle paths as she invites you through guided sensory invitations to experience your own nature connection. The length of the total walk will be about ½ of a mile. As your Forest Therapy Guide, I open the door for you to create your own personal connection to the More than Human World. Invitations facilitate deep relaxation and stress reduction by unplugging from the material world, letting go of mind chatter, our screens, and recharging our energies. We will end our day drinking wild harvested herbal tea and sharing our experiences.


Bring: Water, food to snack on, something waterproof to sit on, or a camp chair if sitting on the ground is difficult for you, sunscreen, and dress comfortably for the weather.  Please arrive 15 minutes before our walk begins.


Where: . Loveland, Co 80538

Date: Let me know when you want to go!


$33 suggested offering. Pay with Paypal at or in person the day of the event, cash or check. Please let me know you plan on coming by leaving me a message in my email box or text me at 616 550 4088
