About this Event

At the turn of each season, close to the equinoxes or solstices, I will guide a walk to attune ourselves to the pace of nature, and of our own.

In a small group, we will walk at a gentle pace on an easy and short trail. During this time, you will be offered specially crafted activities to stimulate your senses and to help you shed away the frantic pace of urban life. Other activities will support you to be in the present moment and place and to reconnect with yourself and your surroundings. There will be also moments to share our experiences together and time spent in silence.

These walks are like a small journey where time suspends itself. A regular practice brings a restorative pause into your life and informs you of your own seasons and transitions. After the walks, people often report a significant reduction of stress and a sense of peace, a lighter mood, an increased self-awareness and a deeper appreciation of our interconnectedness.


NB: A scheduled walk can be postponed due to weather condition. In that case, you'll receive a message with alternative dates to choose from. There is a minimum of 3 participants for the walk to take place.


BY PURCHASING A TICKET, YOU AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

Who is it for?

People from age 18 onwards.

It is not a hike and doesn’t require to be particularly fit, so it’s a very inclusive activity.

Forest therapy can be particularly beneficial, if you are:

- Often overwhelmed and stressed.

- Struggling to slow down and be present.

- Feeling depleted and lacking energy.

- Looking for personal development.

- Longing for a deeper and more meaningful relationship to nature.

- Struggling with seated meditation.


How big is the group?

During the pandemic, the groups will be composed of 5 persons maximum.

If the guidelines change during the year, I'll increase the number. But it will never be more than 10 people.

Health and safety

Any outdoor activity entails known and unanticipated risks and although forest therapy is a low-risk activity, you still need to assume the full responsibility of your own well-being and safety.

The walk will be adapted to follow the safety guidelines, as long as it'll be necessary.

About me

I'm a certified nature and forest therapy guide and a member of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. Nature and forest therapy is a research-based framework inspired by the Japanese tradition of shinrin-yoku (aka forest bathing) and draws on ecopsychology and deep nature connection practices as well. I hold also an outdoor first aid certificate and carry a first aid kit on all my outdoor work.

During my walks, just like you, I always put away my phone to be present and give my full attention to the group. Respecting your experience is my priority and I will never take pictures to try and exploit it for marketing purposes.


Tickets policy

Tickets are non-exchangeable and only refundable up to 30 days before the walk, unless the walk is cancelled by the organiser.
