"I was learning to slow down and use all my senses to take in nature. After the walk, I noticed a feeling of peace and well-being."

"What stands out the most is the shortness of the walk and the magnitude of its benefits "

"The attunement and being with nature was powerful and healing"

"My headache went away. Everything was perfect, and the tea was so subtle and amazingly nurturing"
