Immerse yourself in the quiet calm rejuvenation and healing
of a forest bathing walk as the seasons shift.
Invitations help you unwind, de-stress, slow down, engage
all your senses as your connection with nature deepens.
Guided Forest Bathing walks lower anxiety, blood pressure and the effects of depression, and heighten one's creativity, sense of wellness and happiness.
Whether you need to problem-solve, unwind, be creative or replenish your soul, peace and restoration in nature awaits. With decades of interest and experience in outdoor education, counselling, drama and improv, I look forward to guiding you to a peaceful place, both inwardly and externally.
Having wandered in the woods all my life, I delight in educating and guiding others to an awareness and understanding of the healing power of nature and trees as a tool for peace and prosperity.
I believe that, in order to restore balance to our planetary and emotional health, we must reignite a deeper and sustainable connection between humans and the earth.
I am fully certified through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides, as well as a member of the Ontario College of Teachers, and would love to guide you to a quieter calmer place.
"I had an amazing time on my first forest bathing experience with Beth. She was the perfect and most gracious and accommodating guide. Knowledgeable too. Equal parts adventure and tranquility. Really great stuff. I slept like a baby the night of. I can’t wait to visit these woods again this coming fall with Beth and maybe others!"
"You’re giving yourself a gift by saying yes to Beth’s Forest Bathing experience. You’ll feel refreshed, renewed, reflective and just plain happy that you were part of this... Beth is a skilled facilitator with the ability to sense the needs of both groups and individuals. This is an experience for people whether they already spend a lot of time in nature or not. It can be either a reminder of, or an introduction to the role it can play in our lives... Beth’s friendly, warm, positive and infectious spirit makes it all more than worthwhile. Give yourself the gift!"
"It was an incredible experience to be bathed under the forest canopy and also within your delightful essence. Taking time to have reverence for the forest and remembering the magic that it offers us filled up my heart. So many insights bubbled up while in communication with the forest elements helping me with my transition in life!
I had a great sleep last night and have a full healthy feeling of groundedness and calmness in my body and heart today!
You will see me again and can't wait to share this with others!"

"I met with Beth after a 2 day solo road trip for my mental health and instantly felt a sense of peace and calm when I completed the Nature Bath. Beth is extremely knowledgeable in the background of Nature Bathing, where it comes from and even the acknowledgement of the land we were standing on. Beth’s kind and calming demeanour will absolutely make you feel positive. I encourage everyone to try this experience at least once!"
"...like the Sunnidale Park terrain, Forest, leaves, surroundings today- I discovered a core part of my belonging as a boy!!

"It was November-- the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines. Anne roamed through the pineland alleys in the park and, as she said, let that great sweeping wind blow the fogs out of her soul.”
--L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
