Cells that fire together, wire together.

Neuroscience tells us that what fires together, wires together.  

When our brain cells communicate frequently, the connection between them strengthens every time they connect. Each time this happens the transmission time gets faster and faster until it becomes almost automatic. This brain functionality can be very beneficial when you're trying to learn a new dance step, but if you're frequently stressed out, irritable, or have an unhealthy addiction to technology, this built-in, auto-response function can work against you. 

Spending time in nature can help prune back those over-worked neural circuits, quiet the mind and soothe the spirit for increased relaxation, cognition and well-being.

Leave the devices at home and join us on this gentle two-hour forest immersion. Experience renewal and insight through the forest's calming beauty, nurturing wisdom and awesome intelligence.
