I have been on several of Mary Alice’s Forest Therapy walks and they never disappoint. I always learn something new about myself or gain clarity over an issue that has been keeping me stuck. It is a beautiful way to learn to communicate with nature, to take time to just be, and to allow nature to work its magic and wisdom on you. Mary Alice facilitates this beautifully as she suggests exercises along the way to stimulate your senses, to open up to clarity and to stretch your capabilities in a gentle yet very effective way. These walks truly are a breath of fresh air to the soul.
