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.
