Why nature?

Renew Spiritual Connections

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it’s easy to lose touch with our spiritual selves. Forest Bathing provides a unique opportunity for churches and their congregants to rekindle their relationship with the divine in the serenity of nature.

Embrace Sacred Stillness

Nature has a way of quieting the mind and opening the heart. Forest Bathing allows you to slow down, let go of distractions, and find a sacred stillness where you can reflect, pray, and connect with your spirituality.

Experience Healing and Restoration

Just as the forest nurtures the growth of plants and animals, it can also nurture your soul. Forest Bathing has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, offering a space for healing and restoration.

We believe in

Nature as a Sanctuary

Nature serves as a sanctuary for the soul, a place of solace and renewal. We endeavor to create spaces where teachers can escape the stresses of daily life, disconnect from the digital world, and reconnect with the healing embrace of the natural environment. Through mindful practices in nature, we aim to foster emotional resilience, reduce stress, and improve overall mental well-being.

Community and Support

Our increasingly digitized world can sometimes be isolating, and the weight of consumerism can feel overwhelming. We hold a sacred, affirming space where everyone can connect, share experiences, and provide mutual encouragement. Through group activities in natural settings, we strengthen the bond among members of your community and welcome seekers from all paths.

Promoting Balance

Our busy lives can be demanding, both physically and emotionally. Our mission is to promote work-life balance for everyone by offering opportunities to engage with nature regularly. We encourage participants to find harmony between their professional responsibilities and personal needs, ensuring they have the energy and enthusiasm to excel in their roles.

Sustainability and Gratitude

Our commitment to nature therapy extends to nurturing the environment that sustains us. We invite participants into a sense of gratitude and environmental stewardship, encouraging them to share these values with others. By fostering a deep connection with nature, we hope to inspire mindful stewards of creation.
