Stop struggling with stress and sleep. Start living.
Supporting wellbeing with nature-based practices.

Forest Bathing

Forest therapy is a practice that invites you to slow down and experience the natural world through your five senses without any other goal or focus. This Japanese art form and reflective practice, shinrin-yoku, loosely translates to "taking in the forest through our senses." Through nature connection experiences we can experience mental and physical aspects of wellbeing. Forest bathing sessions are offered locally in Minnesota or virtually around the world.


Helping busy professionals overcome insomnia, chronic illnesses, and burnout through food, herbs, and lifestyle recommendations.

Health Coaching

I'm Kristen Mastel.

A certified forest therapy guide, herbalist and health coach. After facing career and personal burnout, I found that taking the time to be out in nature whether a walk with my pup, Jiggsy, or out on the trails solo was (and still is) crucial to my mental and physical health and burnout recovery. I feel honored to be able to take part in & share the healing power of nature in Minnesota (and virtually) with you!

I have been recognized as one of the Top Health Coaches by Coach Foundation. Also, in 2022 was Top 3 experience for my forest bathing sessions by the Twin Cities Collective. 

Testimonials & Partnerships

I came into the session frazzled after a chaotic morning. I couldn’t believe how relaxed I felt after this. In fact, its an hour later and I am still in my same spot outdoors finishing my french press of tea just observing. Thank you.
