Forest Bathing and Meditation

event Details

2024 Schedule Coming Soon




Find your rhythm through the present moment of connection

As the seasons shift and change so do the rhythms within each of us. The holiday season can sweep us into a chaotic  current of energy. How do we want to experience the upcoming months of our lives This opportunity will  bring us into an awareness where we feel  intuitively, allowing new perspectives to guide us.

Join certified forest therapy guide Jennifer Boudart and Gestaltist Linda Bruce for a gentle walk with the horses followed by a walk in pines. Jennifer will share a series of invitations to explore nature through your sense in any way that feels right to you. As you reconnect with the more-than-human world through your awakened senses, and allow your body to switch to the mode of "rest and digest," you will create a deeper sense of connectedness to self, to others, and to the things of nature. Following the walk we will spend time in the house where we will warm our toes by a fire, share or experiences from the forest bathing and sink in to guided meditation led by Linda.


  • The walk takes place outdoors—wear plenty of warm layers
  • In extreme weather, we may meet in the Main House  *the event will take place rain, snow or shine
  • Please wear closed-toe shoes
  • Bring a warm beverage if desired
  • Maximum Attendance - 20
  • Guests 18 years and older are welcome
  • Stools/mats, lap blankets, and hand warmers will be provided

Jennifer Boudart

Jennifer became a certified forest therapy guide through the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy Guides & Programs (ANFT) to complement her career as a science writer and editor. She is excited to share her passion for nature with others in a very meaningful way, one that helps them to reawaken their sense of wonder, calm, wholeness, and hope. Jennifer follows the ANFT motto: “The forest is the therapist. The guide opens the doors.”
