Spending time in nature can have many wonderful healing effects; mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. My love and appreciation of nature began with hiking; meandering through the mossy, boreal wonderlands of the beautiful East Coast Trail. Almost from the start my worries, anxiety, and frustrations would melt away, dissolving into the moss and duff of the forest floor.

I soon realized something was happening, behind the scenes so-to-say, something profound. It felt wonderful, and it wasn’t the exercise of hiking – there was something more at play. After some research I came upon the term Forest Bathing, little did I know at the time - I had found my calling!

Walks are offered in a variety of locations, including Pippy Park, Portugal Cove-St. Phillips and Tors Cove - throughout all seasons.

Upcoming Walks

Fairylore Walkabout

This adventure is set in the beautiful, seaside community of Tors Cove, a tiny coastal village nestled in the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve (about 30 minutes south of St. John's).

Enjoy a guided walk with a local storyteller (and certified Fairyologist) to ‘The Cribbies’, home to some of the most photographed salt box homes in Newfoundland (not to mention the Fairies). Learn all about our rich Fairy lore, what can be expected from the ‘Little People’ and how to protect yourself from such encounters!

If the winds aren't too strong we'll share a mug-up on the beach (hot and cold beverages, local treats)!
