Very well-run event. Our guide John was personable, knowledgeable and experienced. We had a blast and made several new friends. I thought I knew Central Park but this Meetup Experience opened a whole new side of the park to me. Highly recommend!
Through John’s guidance, I reconnected with a part of me and with nature that I had long forgotten as a person who lives amongst buildings, cars and trains. I found my childish wonder return, and my desire to feel more present and connected in the trees as well as after I returned home. It seems to me that John is a skillful facilitator that helped me connect more with my natural environments as well as connect more with myself.
During his forest therapy meetup, I shared that I was feeling depressed and lonely. When the event was over John took his time packing up his gear and just sat with me. I said I knew he had a two-hour commute home and did not have to and he just chuckled that he was fine where he was. Later I asked for some advice and he said something about me being the better qualified person to answer and offered me a free coaching session under the trees. Wow, I don’t know much about coaching but it reall…
John has this subtle humor at times which is hysterical once you catch it. Really a fun person to work with!!! This guy has class!
John created and held a space where I could open up, be creative, silly, conceptual, sad, excited, etc. He moved me into the nuts and bolts of what truly mattered to me and he got me out of the unproductive loops running in my mind. From there, we explored possibilities and I was able to create action items and challenge myself while he held me accountable. It worked. I got tangible results in creating some marketing items for my business and he helped me remain present and centered when I was …
I wasn’t at all sure what to expect today. I am so happy I attended. We had a great group of people and the venue was perfect. Our guide, John was very organized, kind and informative. I left the walk feeling both relaxed AND invigorated. After a few reflective “invitations” from John and the forest, we ended with a lovely tea and chat session.
John has such a calming demeanor and brings such warmth and soul to his forest therapy programs. I highly recommend spending this guided time in nature if you’re feeling burnt out and disconnected from nature. The world would be such a better place if more people took the time to get back to nature and mindfulness in this way!
A lovely place and charming way to spend the morning. You will leave with a deeper connection with the natural beauty around you.
I have participated in a lot of meditation retreats over many years, so when I saw this experience being offered, I jumped at the chance. I’d heard of Japanese Forest Bathing/Therapy, but never done it and didn’t quite know what to expect. For me, it was even better than I’d imagined. I feel like I’ve so far only touched the surface of the gorgeous abundance of the forest as it meets the power of an aware, receptive mind. Thank you!!!
What an amazing experience! A great mini getaway from the busy city life. John was super welcoming and informative! Would definitely do this again!
