What is Forest Therapy?
Forest Therapy at ClearBeing is a therapeutic practice where Brett guides participants to an inner state of relaxation and whole-being restoration through participation in a series of sensory oriented invitations that bring them into deep connection and present moment relationship with nature. It is a gentle, physically undemanding practice that takes place in the forest and meadows of Happy Valley. The practice supports the health of both humans and the more-than-human world through mutually beneficial relationship building and reciprocity.
Research backed physical benefits of Forest Therapy include:
- Boosted immune system function
- Reduced blood pressure
- Increased heart rate variability
- Faster recovery from illness, surgery, trauma
- Mood stabilization
- Nervous system regulation
As a certified Forest Therapy Guide, Brett is skilled at utilizing proven best practices for inviting and guiding participants into a liminal space of deep presence and connection where the therapeutic benefits, deep healing, and transformational energies of Nature truly come alive and become accessible for the benefit of all.
Your truest light shining through a vital body, meeting the fullness of Now with integrity & love, and an inborn recognition of our essential Oneness with all of Life.
