Forest Bathing Retreat on Peddocks Island




Toadstool Walks, a forest bathing guide service based out of Boston, will offer forest bathing retreats on Peddocks Island on July 6 and August 11. Tickets include a round-trip ferry ticket from Long Wharf Boston, an all-day workshop on forest bathing as well as time for personal exploration and a snack. Optional lunches are available for additional charge.

Tam Willey, founder of Toadstool Walks, is the guide for these forest bathing excursions. Willey is a certified forest therapy guide, training apprentice and mentor with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs. Willey’s training includes an understanding of the scientific framework of forest therapy. Willey created Toadstool Walks as a way to offer support to people in finding their way to experiencing belonging to the natural world.

Attendees should bring a light backpack, something to sit on such as a light camp chair, foam pad, blanket, towel or small tarp, comfortable walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. Be prepared for cooler temperatures and possible rain. Unless there is a significant downpour or storm, the retreat will take place.

Cost: $70-$88. Location: Peddocks Island. For more information, visit ToadstoolWalks.com. To purchase tickets, visit Eventbrite.com/e/forest-bathing-retreat-on-peddocks-island-tickets-61676410805.
