NATURE IS CALLING

Journey into nature with expert guides to embrace the Connecticut countryside. Take advantage of both the stunning surroundings of the Mayflower Forest and nearby Hidden Valley and Steep Rock Preserves, located within minutes of the Inn. Spend time throughout your stay amongst the changing leaves of brilliant fall foliage as New England transforms before your eyes. Learn how time disconnecting allows the self to heal and recharge amongst the complex beauty of the natural world.

Forest Bathing

Experience ancestral awakening practices while hiking in the great outdoors with a guide from THE WELL at Mayflower Inn. Practices such as walking through the forest like a fox, listening like a deer and seeing like an owl are portals to feeling fully alive. When the mind engages in nature's five elements, it invites connection to different aspects of the self; Earth: grounding, Water: creativity, Fire: personal empowerment, Air: self compassion, and Ether: self-expression. Like meditation, Forest Bathing fosters relationship, connection, and the joy of being in the mystery of nature.
