Nature sessions

Time in nature is shown to have many positive wellness benefits. De-stress, lower your heart rate, and feel present.

While eco-therapy inspired, your guide is not a therapist – nature is! We are here for you as a listener and mirror while you learn from nature.


Emberwood’s practice is informed by eco arts expressive therapies, shinrin-yoku (forest bathing), ritual and ceremony creation, Jungian depth psychology, Integrative Body Psychology and embodied spirituality practices. Most of all, sessions are led by nature around us.

What to expect

Sessions are usually 1.5 hours long. Alison will meet you at the park or wild place of your choice. A typical session involves eco-therapy informed mindfulness activities in nature and listening. There is slow walking and sitting. Sessions are available in all seasons.

Who this is for

We work with kids, teens, young adults and adults. You can also have any relationship to nature and any mobility.


Understory is priced on a pay-what-you-can basis. Consider what you might pay for a 1.5 hour yoga class or for counselling. If a suggestion is helpful, we recommend between $25-$125 /session.
