What you'll do

I will guide you through my favorite trails in Pacific Spirit Park, an urban forest with areas of second-growth trees.

Experience ways to increase the connection with yourself and nature, as we explore the natural life of the Pacific Northwest among beautiful Cypress, Douglas Fir and Maple trees. We will draw upon meditation and mindfulness practices, using nature as a way to rejuvenate ourselves and slow down our minds.

I will offer a guided meditation with advice on how to stay present and mindful through the experience.
We will alternate between walking silently and taking breaks as needed, in order to make our experience as rewarding as we can. This will be an easy hiking experience, as our intention will be to slow down and be more attentive in order to take in more through our senses.

Where you'll be

Pacific Spirit Park is a beautiful inner city forest in Vancouver, close to the University of British Columbia. Just over 30 years ago this park was ancestral territory to the Musqueam First Nations people. Spiritual rituals and traditions were regularly performed, until the park was established by Vancouver.

I really enjoyed this experience! Multiple types of meditation were involved, as well as a nice relaxing walk through the forest :) It was a great way to experience nature.

This was a fantastic experience, after meeting with kashif I went on to hike up mount wells, (second time this week) the experience was suddenly so much more rewarding. Kashif helped me get in-tune with nature and helped me become more mindful of what the earth has to offer. Highly recommend! For both visitors and those who live in bc

Enjoyed meditation, setting intentions, and mindful walking. Beautiful setting. Excellent poem! We felt calm and relaxed after the walk. Kashif had a calm and knowledgeable presence.

Was not sure what to expect. I just know that the forest feeds my soul but didn’t understand what forest bathing really was. I walked away with a deeper appreciation and clearer understanding of why the outdoors is my happy place. Kashif encouraged me to stay present and with his gentle guidance provided the meditation needed to produce a reflective, mindful practice. Thank-you Kashif- I’m still trying to process my profound moment after the opening meditation! Namaste
