In Partnership with Missouri Botanical Gardens

Immerse yourself in the restorative embrace of the Missouri Botanical Gardens during a Guided Forest Bathing and Nature Therapy journey with Jess Thenhaus, ANFT Certified Forest and Nature Therapy Guide. Disconnect from the digital world and engage with the living tapestry of the gardens. Delve into Shinrin-Yoku, the Japanese art of forest bathing, and indulge in a sensory exploration amidst the flora. 

Nature’s Invitation: 
This experience is a leisurely walk, not a strenuous hike, intended for deep relaxation and connection. As Jess guides you through gentle, mindful invitations, you’ll engage with nature intimately, using all your senses. Each session includes opportunities to share your insights and learn practices for nurturing your nature connection at home.
