Experience deep nature connection on this half-day retreat with Certified Forest Therapy Guide, Nadine Mazzola. Peel the layers of stress away and support healing by experiencing the medicine of the forest. We’ll do a series of relaxing and engaging activities to engage our senses, deepen nature connection hone intuition and connect with the natural world around us.

This walk covers a total distance of about 1.5 miles on well-maintained but at times uneven trail. The walk will still be on if it's raining, unless it is a really big downpour or violent storm.

Rain often enhances sensory experience and makes for some of our most memorable walks.

Her training includes special knowledge in guiding people of all ages in Shinrin Yoku, "Forest Bathing," Walks and the body of scientific knowledge demonstrating the benefits of spending time in nature as a wellness practice and an effective way to manage stress.
