Appreciating Algonquin Nature Program

EcoWisdom is thrilled to offer guests of Hay Lake Lodge and Cottages, and visitors to the South Algonquin area an in-person mindful nature connection program designed to open your eyes and hearts to the spectacular beauty of this region. You will be introduced to the science and methods of the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, otherwise referred to as Forest Bathing. The program will include a guided nature meditation, poetry, and a series of invitations to foster a deepening connection to the natural world. We endeavour to create a non-judgemental, inclusive, atmosphere for sharing our experiences where participants are given opportunities to modify the way they participate. This relaxing 2.5 hr program will conclude with a wild harvested tea and light snack.

Well Earth Collective

EcoWisdom is forming a relationship with a network of healthcare providers offering a range of support to people living with complex chronic illnesses. Their philosophy is consistent with EcoWisdom in that there is a recognition of reciprocal care – to truly heal ourselves we must also care for the earth. This was initiated by Dr. Riina Bray, M.D., Dr. David Fancy, Ph.D., and Dr. Aviad Elgez, N.D., and now involves many healthcare providers.
