Nature and Forest Therapy Guides

Toby Bloom

Certified Guide Since

Forest Immersion DC is Toby’s local take on Shinrin Yoku. DC has repeatedly been named the most fit city in America, but many of us are stressed out! The good news is that you can experience the healing benefits of nature right here in the DC area. By simply spending time among trees, you can right your relationship to nature, your community, and maybe even to yourself.

On your Forest Immersion Experience, your guide Toby will offer a series of guided “invitations” to assist you in finding your own authentic way of experiencing the natural areas around DC and its suburbs. At the end of the walk, we’ll transition back to the “real world” with a tea ceremony where you will enjoy tea made from plants foraged on site, and some healthy snacks. There’s no right or wrong way to do it, and it’s great for people of all ages and abilities. Wherever you were born, we all have our human roots in the forest. We are a part of nature!
