Perfect for groups of friends and corporate or incentive groups with a minimum of 4 persons, this sensory walk can be tailored to the needs of the group and around the themes of your meeting, retreat or team session.
Our accredited nature and forest therapy guide will lead your group through a series of invitations to deliberately slow down, and to become present and mindful, while gently walking in a beautiful location. We will conclude with a tea ceremony to integrate the experience.
