Það sem verður gert

Forest Bathing is a practice that supports health and wellness through immersion in forests and other environments to promote the well-being of both people and the land. It is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku.

Forest Bathing provides a pathway for people to remember how to immerse themselves in nature to rest from all that consumes them in their modern daily lives. This practice can provide calmness, relaxation and an overall feeling of bliss.

We'll begin with a brief introduction to the land and health benefits of the practice. Then for over 2 hours, we'll gently move through a series of invitations while relaxing and walking in the forest. The sequence of invitations are simple but mindfully created to help you become present and build a meaningful relationship with nature. You will have an opportunity to be silent, walk, sit and share. The practice ends with a tea gathering experience that involves locally foraged plants and small bites of organic food.

Awaken your senses, slow down and make a deep connection to one of the most beautiful forests in Pennsylvania.

Join me... come along on a journey in partnership with nature.

Other things to note:
Restrooms are available upon arrival inside the Hickory Run State Park Visitor Center. Enter the main entrance and the bathrooms are located on the left.

I am native to the Pocono Mountain region of PA. I grew up being surrounded by nature and exploring all the waterfalls, streams and trails in the area. I have found an incredible forest that I would like to share with you and practice a style of Shinrin-yoku that was developed by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy.

I am a certified ANFT Forest Therapy Guide and I will safely take you through a sequence that promotes presence, stillness and improves your relationship with the forest and yourself.

I spend a portion of my time during the year in Costa Rica, which is one of the most biodiverse locations in the world. I began my journey as a Forest Therapy Guide in Costa Rica on the Caribbean slope in a small village called Sarapiqui. I'm thrilled to bring this restoring practice to my homeland of Pennsylvania.

What a unique experience we had with Forest Bathing! I would describe this as a combination of hiking, meditation and tree-hugging, all presented in a personal way that made our group relax and unwind. Our guide, Brian, has a calm and welcoming style that put us at ease and allowed us to just breathe in the forest. It's an easy hike and the scenery is beautiful. I would recommend this as an opportunity to just let the stress melt away from your crazy life. Everyone on our tour appreciated the day.

Our experience was so relaxing. Brian lead us on a beautiful, introspective trip through the forest. With his guidance, we were able to really connect with our surroundings. The air was so fresh and clean, and we had many moments to just take it all in! He also provided some nice snacks at the end of the tree bathing experience. I would definitely recommend! :)

Magical experience! A journey through a beautiful, tucked-away place. As someone who’s local to this area, this experience helped me reconnect to nature and my authentic self, as well as decompress from the chaos of everyday life. Brian is a wonderful guide...encouraging, insightful & kind. The tea ceremony at the end felt very personal & special — a perfect way to end the journey. Highly recommend.

This was such a great experience and was different and better than what I originally expected. My sister and I joined Brian and others in a small group for this experience as we walked through beautiful Hickory Run connecting with nature. This was an informational, enlightening, and calm experience that was well planned. Brian was a wonderful host. I look forward to more opportunities such as this one and recommending others as well.

My sister and I had a great experience this morning with Brian. Neither of us had experienced forrest bathing before. I was able to connect with the land in a way that allowed me to slow my mind and appreciate the abundance of life around us. It was a rather chilly morning and I would recommend hiking type shoes, especially in the Fall season when leaves can be wet and slick on the forrest ground. I look forward to continuing these practices on my own. Brian- many thanks to you for sharing your knowledge and experience with us today.
