The Shinrin-yoku Retreat in the Netherlands is my invitation for you to re-connect with your true self, nature and other human or non-human beings through guided immersion in a beautiful Dutch nature area. The program of the retreat is designed to help you opening your senses, getting naturally mindful, calm, connected, refreshed and renewed. Trained and certified by the American Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, the guide is trained to enhance sensory perception, facilitating connection with place, body, nature and the more-than-human world. She can help you to slow down, turn off the stream of habitual thinking and establish embodied contact with the present moment. The guide works in partnership with Nature and also have a function of a supportive witness, enabling participants to experience whatever the natural environment has to offer to them at the moment. The retreat is a real treat for anyone looking for more connection, focus, creativity and relaxation, boosting their immune system and improving their physical, mental and spiritual health at the same time.
