Nature therapy is also called forest bathing and forest therapy. It is an intentional practice that helps relax the body and connects humans with nature. 

In a guided nature therapy session, you will join a small group of people and be guided through an awakening of your senses that increases mindfulness and connection with the other-than-human world. Every session is different.
