Forest Therapy Session

  • Viamede Resort 595 Mount Julian Viamede Road Woodview, ON, K0L 3E0 Canada (map)

The forest is the therapist, the guide just opens the door! During this session, a certified Forest Therapy Guide will lead you lead you through the woods in a way that draws your attention to your sense and helps you deepen your connection with the natural world. We will be exploring the Blue Stony Lake trail managed by the Kawartha Land Trust near Viamede Resort.

This walk will cover a short distance and move slowly. It is geared more so towards adults, but all are welcome to attend (see FAQs for more info on suitability for children and pets!). Forest therapy has been shown to help reduce blood pressure, lower heart rates, reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression, and help elevate immune functioning.

COST: $40 per person, or $100 for families of 3 or more (maximum 2 adults).

*Some Rooted Heart events are offered on a sliding scale, while others have stationary pricing. This is done to help balance accessibility of services in our community with fair compensation to your guide. For more information on sliding scale options, contact me.
