Yasei Shinrin Yoku
“Wild Forest Bathing
in a Sanctuary Forest”

When we invest in the Forest and the Earth so that she remains strong and healthy then she will invest in us.

The Wildcraft Forest offers a unique approach to Shinrin Yoku which is Japanese for "Forest Bathing" and means "taking in the forest atmosphere". We offer Yasei Shinrin Yoku, which incorporates wildcrafting, and includes a tangible understanding of the sentient forest. Participants are introduced to the many spirit guides that dwell in the forest. Through the use of forest-based teas we will explore the subconscious energies that connect the forest with the most ancient part of our soul.

Each session takes place within the gentle terrain of one of our Yasei Sanctuary Forests. There are meditation platforms and covered areas where presentations and discussions take place. To learn more about the Wildcraft Forest click here.

A typical day will travel participants in a slow quiet walk through the forest. Participants will stop and perform certain exercises and meditations linked to body, mind and spirit. The day will include a discussion within a sacred circle as well as a tea tasting and essential oil experience linked to the primary human “senses”. You can join us for treatment sessions and forest retreats and you can also become a member, which will allow you to drop in and camp in the forest.

We offer additional services such as bodywork, ancestral mapping and energy work.

Explore various treatment services that we offer by appointment.

From anywhere in the world you can download our three week Yasei Shinrin Yoku challenges which explore the healing elements of the forest; outdoor fitness methods; relaxation techniques and detox methods.

Beginning on March 30th 2019 our three week Forest Detox Challenge will begin. This three week program offers a guided experience which you can apply to any forest or  wild location in the world.

Yasei Shinrin Yoku as a forest therapy considers the expansion of our health, purpose and well-being as being directly related to the work that we do for the benefit of the forest – the practice considers that we and the forest are “one” and that through this presence the true natural balance of energy can be achieved that benefits both the individual and the natural world. If we invest in the health and growth of the forest then the forest will invest in us – the medium of exchange is “life-force”.

The forest has all of the elements that can help you through a natural detox process. Within this challenge we will show you how barks, resins, and roots contribute to flushing out toxins and then aid with offering certain protections as the renewal process unfolds. This program helps to strengthen energies that will reinvigorate meaning and purpose as we work with the forests healing energies.

This challenge can be applied to any natural setting and within any season. The program is provided in formats that include video, print and podcast. The program begins on March 20th and if you would like to participate please fill in the online form below and enter your payment. We will provide the challenge material by email.

We would like everyone to participate in this challenge which is why we offer an ability-to-pay scale.

We look forward to your participation!
