12-WEEK YASEI WILD REGENERATION PROGRAM
The Yasei Wild Regeneration Program is a unique 12 week Forest bathing program designed to help people with creative recovery supported by nature. It teaches techniques and exercises that will assist people in gaining self-confidence in harnessing their meaning and purpose by enlisting the natural wild energies found in the forest. The program is focused on supporting healthy relationships through stewardship and removing life blocks and fostering confidence and renewal in one’s life.
The 12 week program takes place once a week within four hour sessions in the forest. A session includes a combination of physical exercise, Yasei practice, study, and meditation and group dynamics. Research shows that 2-3 hours of Forest Bathing per day, for 3 days, increases your natural killer cell activity (cancer fighting white blood cells) by 56% and it will stay that way for approximately 30 days.
12 Session Day Pass (12 Week) – $540
24 Session Day Pass (24 Week) - $1000
Schedule individual or group sessions.

- Spring Trail and Backcountry Road Plant Restoration – We move wild plants from logging roads before the graders arrive and we transplant them into restoration areas.
- Mother Tree Expedition – We search out Mother Trees to collect cones for propagating seedlings.
- Creating Bird Habitat – We create songbird habitat and nesting areas.
- Wild Ginger Restoration – We transplant Wild Ginger in remote backcountry areas.
- Riparian Restoration – We seek to restore riparian areas by planting trees and seedings and transplanting the species that are natural to the ecosystem that supports these edge areas.
- Creating Bug and Snake Habitat – We create remote habitat that supports insects that in turn support snakes which are endangered red-listed species.
- Wild Pollinator Support – We plant natural plant species in remote areas that have been damaged in an effort to support wild pollinators and restore the natural ecosystem.
Because this is the work that we do, these various activities happen throughout the year and as a member you can participate at any time by simply calling in advance. While we carry out these efforts your will learn a great deal about wildcrafting and plant spirit medicine. You will also learn about ecosystems as we make observations of what we are seeing and experiencing in an effort to monitor climate change and biodiversity issues.
