A beautifully put together session that eases you gently and fully into the forest experience. The naturally peaceful atmosphere of the forest left me feeling relaxed, refreshed, and revived. Thank you, Michael and Jo, for a wonderful few hours, the effects of which I am still feeling days after the event.



What an incredible experience! A truly magical way to start the day!



At first, I was apprehensive about a walk in the forest needing a guide, but this session really surprised me. It was so lovely being properly guided on how to use our senses to get back in touch with our natural surroundings. I left the forest feeling calmer and clearer. Highly recommended!
