Bioluminescence Kayak Journey
BIOLUMINESCENCE KAYAK TOUR $140 per person The Bioluminescence Tour gives us a surreal experience. Living organisms produce light, causing the water to glow and sparkle like a cosmic mirror. Any motion in the ocean waters accents this offering, a dance of light as we paddle in darkness. In our experience a kayak tour offers the best way to experience this magic as we move through the night in silence, also motorboats can harm the plankton which are a keystone species for ocean health. Our focus is on safety and fun as we witness the ocean in a unique way that few have had the opportunity to enjoy. The silence opens our senses as we glide through the water almost as if we are flying – a beautiful way to connect with the mysteries and wonders of nature. Watch the ocean floor come alive below and around you, see the glow on the fish and seals. As the sunlight fades silhouetting the BC Coast Mountain range, bats swirl above, heron and other birds head to their roosting spots. Only a short distance from the Backeddy Resort we melt into the night behind the Sutton Islands, away from the lights on shore. We explore with our sensory awareness and encourage you to feel with an open heart. Things to note: See Metta eco experiences website for details, tour times will vary based on time of year. We provide updates on the exact times. Our tours provide a safe and fun adventure.

A Guided Forest Therapy Walk
I invite you to join me in a beautiful forest close to down town Courtenay. We will meet at the trail entrance off of Power House road. After introductions and a safety talk we will enter into the mature Fir, Hemlock, Cedar and Maple forest to slow down and deepen into our senses. I will guide you to explore how you best connect with nature to experience a state of rest and healing. After each invitation we will reconnect we each other to share or listen to what is being felt and experienced. These invitations help bring us back into our bodies and out of our busy heads. On a guided forest therapy walk the pace is deliberately extremely slow. Learning to slow down, to take in all of life’s gifts is something nature can mirror to us. My intention as a guide is to be the bridge helping you to cross over to a feeling body, letting go of stress, fear and judgement and to experience things from the present moment. I will invite you into a supportive and trusting relationship with nature, while knowing things will unfold as they will. It has been proven that after 2 hours in nature our body systems naturally begin to regulate and our immunity is given a boost! Forest therapy walks are well suited for all ages. Children often become the teachers of how to explore nature using all our senses! I hope you will join me to experience nature in a fun, mindful way.
