Shinrin Yoku. Forest Bathing. Deep relaxation. Coming home to ourselves. Clarity of Mind. Inner Peace. Nature and Forest Therapy Guide Dr. Mattie Decker will lead this rare retreat experience of nature immersion from where she lives at Transfiguration Preserve in the Hickory Nut Gorge of western North Carolina. This is an Invitation to deeply experience nature right where you are--in your own backyard or wherever you have a connection in nature with a robust internet connection! Beginning with simple “Invitations” she uses on her Forest Bathing walks, and pauses for reflection.

Mattie Decker is an Oblate in the Community of the Transfiguration, who guides walks with Conserving Carolina and Asheville Wellness Tours, on the protected wilderness land of the Sisters of the Transfiguration and Conserving Carolina, at Bat Cave, NC.
