Lance Heard

Certified Guide Since

Provides guided forest therapy sessions both open to the public and group outings. Custom guided forest therapy sessions is also available by appointment.

Host: I am currently certified by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs - ANFT as a level 3 guide. I have been a practitioner of ‘Forest Bathing’ for two years. The three things about Forest Bathing that excite me the most are the health benefits, its ability to reduce stress, and the special pleasure connection it brings with nature. I am a tenured professor at Mount San Antonio College where I offer guided Forest Therapy sessions to students, staff, and the community in the campus Wildlife Sanctuary. My co-host is a Board Certified adult outpatient psychiatrist, practicing forest therapy for two years who also practices mindfulness meditation and yoga.
