These immersions serve as an opportunity to cross the threshold into reclaiming your ancestral relationship to the natural world in ways that empower you to find your strength as a QTBIPOC individual.
Where & When

This trip is based on a $150-300 sliding scale to support operating costs. If you would like to sponsor a ticket for someone please purchase a second ticket with "Sponsorship" in the comments. Donations for scholarships can also be made on our Donation Page.
The forest bathing immersion is centered around BIPOC individuals in their journey towards reclamation and reconnection to the natural world. These immersions offer opportunity to experience the healing benefits of the natural world through various mindfulness-based forest bathing activities, space to engage in collaborative activities and conversation that build connection with human and more-than-human kin, and naturalist skills that empower your own wiilderness trips in confidence such as how to set up tents, pack a backpacking pack, navigate with a compass, start a fire, tie knots, and identify various plants and trees.
