“Working with Nature Therapy Michiana has been a wonderful experience. We were able to truly connect ourselves with the forest, not only through mediation but through understanding and appreciation for the original caretakers of the land. Karen is such a calm and excepting person, which made our first experience of forest bathing amazing. We are excited to work with Nature Therapy Michiana on future programs across our preserves.”


“I work in web development and I’m on my computer so often. Getting away for a forest bathing session has been so helpful to really get away from the digital world! The experience helps me to refocus my energy and time. I’m more productive and focused. I highly suggest giving forest bathing with Karen Joy a try for stress relief or just to detox from the everyday. Karen Joy is amazing!
