What you'll do

First, we will meet at a local coffee shop in one of Edmonton's most historic neighbourhoods to introduce ourselves and answer any questions you may have. As we set off on our forest bathing experience, I will orient you as to the access point for our walk, and we'll begin our journey together.

The first part of the walk will be done in conversation as we discuss your interest in this experience, the importance of connecting with nature, and the many amazing ways in which our river valley trails wind through the city.

The second part of the walk , as we go deeper into the woods and deeper into ourselves, will be done in silence. I will guide you into a relaxed and meditative walk as we focus on our breath. At points along the way, I'll invite you to connect with each of your senses as we let go of tension and stress, sink deeper into relaxation and renewal, and experience the healing benefits of our nature immersion.

We will then close with some cleansing breath work and a seated guided meditation among the trees before emerging back onto the city streets. To wrap things up, I will answer any last questions you have and ask if you wouldn't mind writing a comment about your experience in my guest book.

  • Identity verified
I am a nature enthusiast and passionate about sharing Edmonton's amazing river valley trail system, the largest in North America, with those seeking to experience Alberta's capital city in a unique and refreshing way.

Imagine that only steps away from the high rises, shops and busy streets you could find yourself immersed in a forest bathing experience, being expertly led on a refreshing, healing walk along the banks of our gently flowing North Saskatchewan river. Breathe in relaxation, breathe out stress. Let me take you there.

As a long-time Edmonton resident who trained to walk a marathon along these paths and a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner with the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada, rest assured you will be in good hands. We will finish our experience with a 15 minute guided meditation among the trees.
