Elemental Magick offers a unique, immersive experience with the Mystical Rainforest Tour. It was great to slow down and really take in the forest, with John's expert guidance around mindfulness and appreciation of nature. I would highly recommend Elemental Magick to friends and family!
Our tour at Francis King park can only be described as magical! It was my first time to the park and I was just blown away by all the things I was able to experience by slowing down (which is very hard for me to do) and really tapping into my 5 senses (see / hear / smell / touch / taste). I think this is a tour that everyone should experience, an opportunity to slow down, immerse yourself in nature and experience the magic. Thank you Elemental Magick Holistic Adventures for a truly great morning.
John, Thank you so much for the forest tour. I loved it. I really appreciated your knowledge and how you guided the exercises. I would definitely recommend this to others. Tammy
It was amazing!
Good guide , nice forest walk and we'll structured
The rain only made this experience better, misty dampness spreading magic. This walk reintroduced me to the magic and love trees want to share with us. Blessings!
It was magical to experience the forest with a guide so connected to and in tune with the beauty and mystery of it. Being invited to be mindfully aware of my senses while immersed in the forest was rejuvenating. Thank you! Highly recommended!! I will be back :)
