Forest Therapy

Sitting under the Tree of Life


We live in a world that’s often disconnected from the natural world, and yet instinctively most of us feel the greatest connection to God when we’re outside in creation… and no wonder! Building scientific research shows that mindfully spending time in nature is powerful medicine for the body, mind, and soul. Benefits include reduced stress, heart rate and blood pressure, and improved concentration, creativity, and mood. This class will get you outside and into the presence of God.

If you’re a spiritual director or leader, this course will help you learn a new modality of healing you can offer your communities.
