Forest Therapy

A guided, sense-based and mindful way to be in nature



Forest Therapy is a guided, sense-based and mindful way to be in nature. Taking place in a small area with a Forest Therapy Guide, crafted invitations offer ways to interact with natural beings that make space for healing of mind, body, and spirit in a simple yet profound way. Based on the Japanese practice of “Shinrinyoku,” or “forest bathing,” we “bathe” in not only immune-boosting chemical compounds of nature but also in the feeling of being present and connected.

Nashvillians are increasingly fast-paced, disconnected, anxious, and depressed. Forest Therapy Nashville, through this forest therapy practice, invites a way to start healing ourselves and our city.
