I am Sari, a Forest Therapy Guide, Whole Health Educator™ and Reiki Master.
My work focuses on whole person wellness and deep stress regulation to help you drop into your sensory body, slow down, step into the present moment and let go of stressful thoughts.
Thank you for checking out my website where you can learn more about Forest Therapy, Mind-Body Stress Regulation and Reiki Energy Healing. I look forward to connecting with you.
There are many ways to be in nature and Forest Therapy is much more than simply spending time in the woods. During this mindful walk through the forest, your guide facilitates you in letting go of stress, slowing down and awakening your senses while helping you become present and deeply connected with nature. An essential part of forest therapy is taking part in a series of facilitated "invitations". The invitations help open your doors of perception as you experience the forest directly through hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting and touching, allowing for deep sensory connection. The ability to simply notice where we are and what we feel allows us to become fully present to ourselves and to witness the world around us with a new perspective. Forest Therapy is an evidence-based wellness practice also known as Shinrin Yoku, which translates to "Forest Bathing." The practice is guided in groups and for individuals and couples.
The Stress Regulation Sessions I facilitate integrate Mind-Body techniques and a series of "Body Hacks" to help regulate and calm your sympathetic nervous system. These techniques include breathwork, gratitude, guided imagery, mind-body technique, movement for energizing and calming the system and mindful nature immersion through sensory connection. As a Whole Health Educator™, my practice is evidence-based. In addressing whole person wellness, my offerings integrate Reiki Energy Healing to help calm the sympathetic nervous system, support healing; pain issues and balance the energy body.
"The forest; the Earth's magnetic field; the trees, wild creatures, running water, flowers and plants; the sweet breeze and the sky; stars; sun and moon. Nature is a powerful healer and slowly moving one's body in it; tuning in to the senses or simply sitting and becoming part of the life of the forest, allows us to feel from deep within that we are part of something much greater than ourselves."
