Well Being Retreat Center is nestled on 160 acres of land boarded by 2 miles of the Powell River in eastern Tennessee. The mission of the Well Being Foundation is to promote harmony with nature, wellness of body and peace of mind. This is a place where the sights and sounds of nature prevail and can be explored on a network of gravel roads, trails or by just meandering on the land. It offers places to be down by the rivers edge, in among a vast diversity of trees and other beings, or up at the top of the hill with views of the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee and Kentucky.

All the buildings are built in a way that is light on the land and blends with the surroundings - cabins are built into the hillsides, some are earth-sheltered and others were designed around standing trees. The open-air, covered pavilion, where we will gather and share meals, is at the river’s edge. The cabins, a fire pit, a labyrinth and other facilities are spread out across this hilly landscape. Well Being Retreat Center is reserved entirely for our Forest Therapy Immersion so that our group can have all the tranquility and space all to ourselves to forest bath, relax, play and explore as we wish.

Tam Willey es guía, capacitadora, mentora de ANFT y fundadora de Toadstool Walks con sede en Boston, Massachusetts. Tam ha dirigido la Terapia de Bosque desde 2017 en colaboración con The Arnold Arboretum de la Universidad de Harvard, The Emerald Necklace Conservancy, Mass Audubon, Peabody Essex Museum, Lesley University Holistic Psychology and Wellness, Boston University School Of Theology, y más. Tam diseña y lleva a cabo retiros de inmersión con The Venture Out Project y ha sido mentora y ha servido a jóvenes LGBTQ a través de varios programas en Boston durante la última década. Tam es una apasionada de las formas en que la Terapia de Bosque puede apoyar y ampliar las relaciones mediante el intercambio y el testimonio en comunidad con el mundo natural o más que humano de una manera que respalde nuestro recuerdo de que no estamos simplemente en relación con la naturaleza, sino que somos naturaleza.

Christine Hoyer es una guía certificada de Terapia de Bosque y Naturaleza y vive en Tennessee. Creció explorando la naturaleza y los parques nacionales de los Estados Unidos, lo que la llevó a una carrera en el manejo de áreas silvestres y más de 17 años de experiencia en senderos. Se sintió atraída por la Terapia de Bosque y Naturaleza como una forma de profundizar su propia conexión auténtica con el mundo natural. Mantener ese espacio para que otros experimenten abiertamente los dones y beneficios de la naturaleza se ha vuelto igualmente importante para Christine. Ella asumió el rol de coordinadora del programa de Certificación de Senderos para la Asociación de Terapia de Bosque y Naturaleza para apoyar la expansión de la red de senderos y experiencias de senderos. Ha guiado activamente desde el 2019 y también se desempeña como mentora y formadora en entrenamiento para guías en formación. Su pasión radica en la creencia de que todos tienen la capacidad de despertar, volver a despertar, explorar y expandir su propia conexión con el mundo más que humano simplemente estando presentes y sintonizados con lo que se ofrece.
