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.

“Of all the roads you take, make sure a few of them are dirt” John Muir This was a most magical experience; I’m almost at a loss for words. It was a chance to be still, connect with others in an open and vulnerable yet safe space with likeminded humans who were being, not doing. The chances to see, hear, smell, taste and touch all the beauty of this trail allowed a chance to travel inward, reflect on who you are, who you’ve been and who you wish to be. Brian’s ability to bring people together with nature in a profound way with beautiful nuggets that pull it all together. Learning from him, as well as each other renews the soul in a way you will never find anywhere else. I cannot wait to return next year. Because I know that I will have a different experience as a person who has evolved in multiple moments of being able to “be here know” in that space of time. And it will unfold exactly as it should with exactly the right people. If you need a chance to just be still, DO.THIS.EXPERIENCE. It will be more valuable than you can even imagine.

We enjoyed the zen experience and were able to be completely immersed in what was in front of us. Brian was a great guide, and we’d highly recommend this experience for anyone who is looking for a peaceful experience.

This experience was really incredible. Although walking in a forest seems easy enough Brian made this experience extraordinary and magical. Everything came to life in vivid color as we visited each beautiful location. You will leave with a new appreciation for nature and be able to incorporate what he has taught you in your everyday environment. Brian is a beautiful being with a gentle soul who can show you how to find healing within yourself through nature. I would strongly recommend this experience to help anyone and really helpful to those who need a break from everyday hustle and technology.

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! :)
