We thought we were coming out of the pandemic and looked forward to adding more public walks. Alas, with the rise of the Covid-19 variants, public walk availability will be more limited. We look forward to seeing you when the pandemic subsides. In the meanwhile, be safe, and remember that nature -- including city nature -- is available as a form of solace.
There's a saying that "every place has its shadow". In New York City, a bustling metropolis where people are on the go, nature calls to us in important ways.
Forest therapy enhances wellbeing through gentle immersion in parks, forests and other natural environments. It is a way to connect with nature, yet it is more than that. It is a way to awaken your sensing and being self, deep and nourishing parts of oneself that often don't receive a lot of attention in our fast paced, technology-driven lives. Urban Edge Forest Therapy is Manhattan's first forest therapy provider with a guide certified by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. We offer public and private guided forest therapy walks--also called forest bathing--in Central Park and other parks throughout Manhattan and the broader New York City area.
