Sunset Nature Immersion with Linda Lombardo 

Forest Walks with Linda Lombardo

Life coach and certified forest therapy guide, Linda Lombardo, leads you on an immersive walk in the organic farm with invitations that open the senses and slow you down, in order to notice, renew and reconnect.

Your guide offers an experience through a series of invitations that open the senses, slow us down and prepare us to reconnect with the earth, ourselves and others. Your experience will always be personal and unique to you. Put your cameras away during the walk; cell phones, too, or set them to ‘silent’.
