Natural Creativity - Outdoor programs with the Bavins

Join Pat and Ryan Bavin for some creative inspiration in nature! 

Pat is a certified Forest Therapy guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Ryan is a certified Hiking guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides.  They are both professional artists as well!  They are joining forces for some creative fun in and around the natural areas of the Columbia Valley. 

We will be exploring Nature for creative inspiration using the fundamentals of Forest Therapy to guide and  tap into our intuition.  A variety of outdoor exercises will be offered to stimulate the imagination to further develop ones own artistic practice, regardless of the medium you work in.


  • Inspiration for new designs and ideas.
  • Using your imagination to improve creative opportunities and solutions.
  • Engaging your senses to improve what you see and feel for better interpretation within your medium.
  • Different viewfinder investigations for photographic research and design.
  • We will start with a 2.5 hour Forest Therapy walk to shift and calm the mind and body to enhance your creative spirit.  Our walk will also offer a new relationship of discovery for your senses and the elements of Nature for future Forest enjoyment.
