With Annette Naber, Ph.D. of Emerald Mountain Sanctuary

Forest Bathing, or shinrin-yoku, was developed in Japan in the 1980s as a form of preventative medicine, or nature therapy. Experiencing the forest through all of our senses and in a mindful manner, we slow down and connect with the trees on a spiritual level and reconnect with Mother Nature. Followed by time for journaling.

Originally from Germany, Annette has lived in the US for over 30 years and has traveled extensively in Europe, Africa, North America, and the Caribbean. After retiring from a career as a clinical psychologist in the Washington DC area, she now offers life coaching, workshops and retreats. Living on her farm tending to organic gardens, she continues to study traditional ways of growing and preparing foods, using natural materials in creating products and living spaces that are both beautiful and functional, using plants for cosmetic, medicinal, and culinary purposes, and applying permaculture principles to create a more sustainable way of life. Her interest and experience in holistic living are inevitably interwoven with all of her services.
