Lisa Curran is the creator of Glengarriff Forest Therapy. She has always had a deep connection and love for nature. With a background as a Yoga and Shamanic Practitioner, she has a passion for health, wellbeing and the land.
Nature has always been her sanctuary and greatest teacher. Since moving to Glengarriff in 2017 she has been immersed in her work with the forest.
Having experienced the incredible benefits of forest bathing herself, Lisa decided to train with the Forest Therapy Institute. She completed a six month course and is qualified as a Forest Bathing Guide and Forest Therapist.
Lisa holds monthly Forest Bathing walks in Glengarriff Nature Reserve and is the resident Forest Therapist for the luxurious Glengarriff Lodge, where she also holds Forest Bathing and and Forest Therapy Retreats.
Lisa is available for private groups and one to one sessions in West Cork and beyond. Her wish is to share this wonderful practise with as many people as possible, as the forest helps us to remember our place in the web of life and our connection to it, at a time when it’s needed most.
I highly recommend this experience. This guided session shows you how to appreciate the sounds, smells and nature of beautiful Glengarriff Forest. It was so relaxing, mindfulness at its best. Many thanks for a wonderful guide Lisa. The tea ceremony was a lovely finish to an unforgettable afternoon.
The best gift you could give yourself
Lisa has a lovely way of introducing forest bathing and all the concepts of connecting with the woodland environment. A very lavishing experience
The experience was therapeutic and beneficial adjusting to the rhythm of the forest with its beautiful plant and animal life at Autumn time. Lisa has a peaceful and calming voice and gives permission for a person's own spirit to come into harmony with the hidden wonders of creation. I really enjoyed the forest bathing and the concluding Japanese tea ceremony, it was simply and beautifully done. Lisa has a gift for connecting with people
A great way to escape from your busy head and come into your body and senses. A meditative experience. Lisa is a great guide
