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!
