What you'll do

Because of COVID-19, we are only booking GROUPS consisting of your household/pod/family. If you want a SOLO experience you MUST book as a Private Group. Because of the Santa Cruz mountain fires last summer, some forests are unavailable. Based on your group's needs, we will take you to a beautiful and age-appropriate local redwood forest. There may be a $10/car entrance fee at some locations.

Is the Redwood Forest calling you? Would you like to know it in a new way? In this guided experience you will make a personal connection with the Subtle Realms of the Redwood Forest. We will meet in Santa Cruz, and then caravan to the trailhead in the heart of Redwood country. Going into the Redwood Forest together, we will walk, pause, energize all our senses, and attune with the Subtle Realms of Nature. The gift of music will set the tone, and our loving presence will open the way. We will call on the Elements---Earth, Air, Fire and Water---to bring us to a new understanding of the aliveness and interconnectedness of the natural world. At the end, we will spend a few minutes writing about our experience. This will help you to recall how to connect with the Subtle Realms back home. As we complete our time in the Forest together, you can choose to stay longer on your own, or walk out with the group, fully energized with a new vision of our interconnectedness.

Where you'll be

Our location is a locals' delight. Although we probably won't be the only people in this Redwood Forest, we'll be spending most of our time off the main path. We'll have a chance to get in a circle of Redwoods called a fairy ring, gazing upwards hundreds of feet into the treetops. We'll see, hear and touch the creek. We'll walk further into the Forest and connect deeply with Nature

This was a magical and healing experience for our whole crew! Coleen and Dawni are deep listeners who care about creating a meaningful experience for those on the tour. It also definitely transformed how we experience the forest.

This was my second time with this Airbnb experience. The first time felt very magical and grounding, and I wanted my friend Emily to experience it too. Highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to deepen their connection with nature and the redwood trees. Dawni and Coleen are very special souls, and will invite you to open up your senses in nature.

This was a lovely experience. Our one year old son had a fantastic time connecting to the Earth, as did we! If you are looking for a calming, grounding, and spiritual experience in the beautiful redwood forest you will not be disappointed. Thank you Coleen and Dawni for sharing your passion for the beautiful forest with us!

This was a magical and inspiring experience, because of the location and the two amazing guides, Coleen and Dawni. Coleen and Dawni really took care to personalize the experience for me, asking me to share what brought me there. They are both extremely knowledgeable about the area of the redwoods they took me to, and had a unique and holistic perspective on nature, our own indigenous/nature honoring self, and how to receive messages from the Redwoods. The experience was full of singing (I was invited to sing along), tactile and sensory connections with nature, and sharing of experiences. Coleen and Dawni are amazing people, deeply connected to spirit and nature.

This was truly one of the most moving experiences I have had in my life. We were in a small group and able to really get to know each other. Coleen and Dawni were so kind and patient. I will treasure this experience forever!
