You’re a kindred spirit who loves spending time in nature.
- You’re surrounded by fluorescent lighting during the day and all sorts of synthetic materials at home.
- You know there’s something about the sun and the grass and the trees that just call to you. You can sense their reverberations no matter how deep into the drywall you sit.
- Knowing what’s out there makes you resent the walls and insulation between you and the raw world out there.
- You feel it when you’re sitting in the office, waiting for clock-out time.
You just want to be outside.
Everything about nature draws you in, ever since you were a kid. Some of your best memories come from being outside.
You want that windows open, barefoot, full expression of nature you enjoyed as a kid.
You know there’s just “something about it.” Something about nature that magnetizes you.
You wish you could take that deeper.
And you wish the time you spent in nature was more … meaningful.
You want to get more out of it. Be more intentional about it.
But you find yourself putting it off for more “important” things. You don’t get out there as much as you’d like to…
Maybe you’ve even heard about this whole shinrin-yoku, forest bathing thing and you want to know what it’s all about.
Or you already practice it, but you’d like to deepen your existing practice.
Well then, you’re in the right place!
We’re so excited to finally share our full forest bathing program with you!
It’s going to finally explain the who, what, where, when, why, and how of forest bathing, and then some!
But more than that, this program is going to make spending time in the forest so much fun, so meaningful, and so fulfilling.
Forest bathing isn’t just a nice thing to try…
Well, it is, but …
Hard science is showing us just how good it is for the body, mind, and soul!
- It hones your intuition.
- It allows you to decompress in a profound way.
- It makes you feel better and more alive!
Deep breathing relieves stress.
Deep breathing in the forest while doing grounding work relieves stress in a more profound, lasting way.
This immersion program truly encapsulates that feeling when you open that first window in spring, when you drive with the windows down, when you touch your bare feet to the grass. (Can you feel that?)

Who this program ISN’T for:
- People who can’t possibly slow down and scoff at the idea of immersing themselves in trees (although if you took the time to consider it, I have a feeling it would change your mind;).
- Anyone with ZERO access to a single tree.
- People who are allergic to the sun.
Hey, I’m Jessica, I’m delighted to meet you!
When I first heard about forest bathing, I read everything I could get my hands on about it. I was intrigued. I’ve always loved nature.
Nature is at the essence of my very being and I loved the idea of playing in the forest with an actual intention.
Forest bathing seemed to be the perfect way to get more out of
my time in nature.
At different times in my life, I’ve been struck by anxiety and depression. I also had a traumatic postpartum OCD experience.
THIS nature bathing program would’ve been a godsend when I was recovering. And I’m hoping it helps any of you that know mindfulness, time in the sun, and meditation help so much with mental health.
As I researched forest bathing, I saw that there really wasn’t anything out there about how to do it. Lots of articles cover the subject of forest bathing and the benefits of forest bathing, but no actual programs about how to practice it, unless you want to study to be a guide.
There aren’t any resources out there for the individual who wants to spend quality time in nature by themselves. And I don’t know about you, but there really aren’t any groups or guides in my home area. So, I decided to create this program for you…
The person who wants to spend more time outdoors, with a purpose.
- The person who’s curious about this whole forest bathing thing and what one might get out of it
- The person who wants to explore the forest for themselves
- The person who doesn’t want to have to find and hire a guide
- The person who’s been looking high and low for more about forest bathing
This one’s for you!
Uh, this is called hiking, tyvm. Why would you call it anything different?
I get it. You’re not convinced there’s a difference between forest bathing and hiking in the woods. In my experience, the two are completely unrelated. Forest bathing is like nothing I’ve ever done before, especially hiking. For one, hiking revolves around a destination and a speed related to getting there. Forest bathing has no particular destination and it’s more about meandering or sitting than fitness. While hiking, you probably only vaguely notice what’s happening around you. During forest bathing, you’re acutely aware.
Isn’t this just some pretentious hipster millennial pretend play that you’re trying to make a “thing”?
Well, I don’t think there were any hipster millennials in 1980s Japan, hehe. Even if there were, it’s still enlightening, a thrill, isn’t it? Shinrin-yoku was a thing before I was born. The Japanese get all the credit, not the hipsters. It’s not really about classification anyhow. It’s an experience that many more people are starting to enjoy. If it’s not your thing, that’s okay. You can guiltlessly click away.
Also, numerous studies show the real inarguable physical and mental benefits of forest bathing. Shinrin-yoku is based cold hard fact, not pretension. We compiled an entire resource about the science behind nature and forest bathing.
I’m a Christian. Is this program in conflict with my faith?
No! This program is not religious at all, but it certainly doesn’t go against Christian values. I’m a Christian myself, so I would never knowingly mislead anyone. This is simply a nature appreciation program. There is no worship of trees or belief in faeries here. No worries, it’s not pagan.
Also, if you’re interested, we’re in the process of creating a Christian nature experience program to help you dig deeper into your faith while you enjoy the company of God’s living world. Stay tuned!
Do I need any equipment for this?
Nope. Not even shoes are required. And I would discourage more than the bare necessities anyhow. You just need an available space in nature.
I live in the city. I probably can’t do this then, right?
Nope! Most of these exercises can be done in a park or in a patch of trees, if you don’t have access to an actual forest. The best experiences happen in the actual wilderness, true. But, you can do this in the city. In fact, city-dwellers probably need this practice more than anyone!
What do I do when I’m done?
Keep practicing. Keep sharing in the group. Keep an eye out for more on the blog and inside the program. You never know what we might cook up over there.
Other sites recommend hiring a guide to go forest bathing? How come you don’t?
You can forest bathe alone. Who ever decided you couldn’t?
I actually think there are some benefits of doing it alone. You can be completely uninhibited. If you’re an introvert like me, you can appreciate spending time alone. If you go with a group, you might not always get the full experience since you’re aware that others can see what you’re doing.
There are some benefits to having a guide, sure. If a guide suits you, go for it. I wanted to make this as accessible as possible, guide or no. And you don’t need any outside resources to go forest bathing. Not even this program.
Can kids do this too?
Heck yeah! I do these with my own kidlets all the time! This is a really great way to cultivate that sense of appreciation for nature in your kids. It’s also a great way to spend meaningful time with them, in nature, at the same time! Bring ’em along! You might need to guide them and keep them out of the poison ivy, but you already know that.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the digital nature of this program and low cost, no refunds can be issued. The exercises in this program are just like the ones in the starter guide. If you enjoyed those, you’ll LOVE these!
The Immersion Guide itself is much more in depth than the starter guide. Hopefully that gives you a better idea of what you’re getting. If you are still unsure about anything or want more information before purchasing, go ahead and email me at JessicaM(dot)Collins(at)hotmail(dot)com and I’ll help clear anything up that I can.
We are so excited to be able to offer this program at the affordable price of $69.97.
That’s around $2 per exercise, and I can assure you, each exercise is far more valuable than $2!
Okay, I just had the idea to make this a little more fun. So, I’m adding a bonus.
The first 10 people to sign up get a free in-depth, one-on-one forest bathing email consultation with me. We’ll go over anything you’re stuck on, any questions you have, or any other cool nature-y thing you’d like to talk to me about.
We can also talk about your dog, children, or job if you’d like too. But nature bathing is one of my favorite subjects to talk about!
