Join us for
"Remotely Guided Forest Therapy |
Shinrin Yoku Walk"
COMING TO YOU ON ZOOM
A guided Forest Therapy walk is a celebration of nature and human connection helping us to relax, recharge, improve our moods and concentration, boost our immune system functioning, experience the felt experience of aliveness, slowing down, getting new insights, being naturally creative... and then bringing all of this with a big smile back home to our daily life.
This event is limited to 20 participants.
Note: Zoom Meeting Details will be sent with your confirmation email
June has always had a desire to help others and a love of Nature. As a young child she climbed & sat in trees, hiked local trails, as an adult she backpacked in the Adirondacks Mountains. She has a passion for art as her father was an oil painter and she grew up drawing and painting. As a young adult she learned wheel throwing pottery and she assisted a local potter in the operations of the studio and teaching classes. She pursued a 42 year career in the medical field where she worked as a Registered/ Licensed Occupational Therapist (OTR/L) in the field of Rehabilitation & Hand Therapy. Here she found the medical field only focused on the physical body but lacked addressing the whole person particularly mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual. She pursued additional extensive training in different mindfulness & meditation techniques as well as becoming a Reiki Master utilizing these techniques which she provided along with her Occupational Therapy treatment sessions. These additional techniques greatly helped patients better manage pain, anxiety and decrease their stress levels and improving their ability to focus. June retired after 42 years as an OTR/L but she wanted to continue to help her community and continues to offer services and teach methods to help manage one’s stress and health issues as well as offering reiki sessions and teaching reiki classes. June’s desire to continue helping others and her love of Nature led her to become a Certified Forest Therapy Guide through The Association Nature and Forest Therapy Guides (ANFT). June is very passionate about guiding others to experience Nature in a different way. She feels that by sharing her knowledge and guiding others in this forest bathing practice will give them the tools to manage their stress and discover the ability to enhance healing themselves though boosting their immune system as well as increasing relaxation and emotional contentment by partnering with Nature. This practice also deepens one’s relationship with ourselves and the world around us.There are more WOOF events coming up soon:
