EcoSuperior is proud to now be offering guided Forest Therapy Walks to Thunder Bay.
Forest Therapy; also known as Forest Bathing and Shinrin-Yoku, is an evidence-based therapeutic practice that connects people to forest environments through gentle, sensory-based invitations. This practice typically runs for 2-4 hours and consists of a series of invitations following a standard flow model, which takes place in a forest, or another healing natural environments. Forest Therapy can be seen as a gateway practice into ‘re-wilding’ ourselves- nourishing us back to remembering our connection with the living landscape.
