Immersing in Nature as Therapy
We have always known this intuitively. But in the past several decades there have been many scientific studies that are proving the healing effects of simply being around plants and trees.
For example, many trees give off organic compounds that support our “NK” (natural killer) cells that are part of our immune system's way of fighting virus cells in the body.
Nature-based teachings are an intrinsic part of Wild Breath’s work.
The scientifically-proven benefits of immersing in nature as therapy include:
Boosted immune system functioning, an increase in the count of the body's Natural Killer (NK) cells.
Reduced blood pressure
Increased ability to focus, even in children with ADHD
Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness
Increased energy level

NIDRA & NATURE SERIES
Knowing that the natural world around us is sentient and that it reminds us of who we really are, I created an online, self-guided class incorporating nature + meditation called the Nidra & Nature series.
When we look to the seasons, we can see the clarity we seek. The answers reside within us. These guided meditations and nature wandering prompts help us to tune into what we already know, to slow down, and to remember our innate wisdom. With this class, you can flow from one season to another with effortless ease.
You receive: - Four 35 - 40 min. yoga nidra guided meditations (mp3 files)
- List of affirmations / intentions to work with for each season
- Four love letters for each season including a workbook with tree energies, self-care prompts and a nature walk exercise.
EARTH: A Virtual Workshop
Get your journal ready, pour a cup of tea & settle in for a morning of enough-ness. You’ll receive six videos with 1.5 hours of content including two guided yoga nidras. Set aside a few hours to follow along for the morning, meditate, and take yourself on a nature walk. You’ll do some writing and reflecting as you come home to the earth and to yourself.
