$20.00 – $225.00
NO Meditation or Hiking experience Required.
Recharge in Nature with Heart Wild Adventure’s PRIVATE FOREST HEALING SESSIONS. You will enjoy the gifts of forest bathing for 2 hours in a uniquely selected area within Kananaskis Parks area. (Exact location will be determined at time of booking.)
…and no, this does not mean you will actually take a bath in the forest each month, what it means is you will be energetically, emotionally and mentally clearing and healing in nature as you mindfully connect with all your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch).
You will be guided to invite in the energy of Mother Earth and the elements as you embark on your Forest Bathing experience. Cara will lead you in gentle forest healing activities designed to stimulate;
- Mindful Listening
- Mindful Awareness
- Mindful Observation
- Mindful Immersion
- Mindful Appreciation
The main concept will be to to go slow and to mindfully and intentionally use your senses to connect with aspects in nature that bring you peace and happiness. There will be time to connect to share insights and healing, however majority of the time will be spent in silence (forest bathing) in a safe, supportive, environment.
*Note: group size is limited to 10 participants.
*All participants will be required to sign a Waiver of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Express Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreement before departing on any Heart Wild Adventure.

This Heart Wild Forest Healing is for anyone who feels the need to get outdoors…to turn the phone off, to spend time away from distractions and enjoy the present moment in the woods with no objective other than to allow themselves a moment of peace, healing and re-connection.
We will meet at a specified trail head and mindfully walk to the desired location (approx. 20-30min walk). Cara will start the Forest Bathing by calling in the 4-directions, Mother Earth and the Elementals and will then guide you into a specific Forest Healing Activities. When finished we will walk out as a group and give thanks to the Forest prior to your departure.
