Meridian is committed to helping people reconnect to the natural world through embodied experience. With events hosted in the Bay Area and beyond, our mission is to help people slow down and find a place of stillness where meaningful connection with nature becomes possible.
Meridian's Guided Forest Therapy Walks aim to help repair the relationship between people and places. By improving these relationships, Meridian aims to support and protect all life on our planet.
Meridian is a proud partner of the San Francisco Botanical Gardens and OneTreePlanted. To further support the health of the natural world, a portion of all ticket sales is donated to OneTreePlanted.org, a nonprofit dedicated to reforestation.
Meridian Forest Therapy is led by Tom Imus, a certified guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. Tom grew up in the Chicago Area and is currently based in San Francisco, California, where he leads forest therapy walks and works to help finance renewable energy projects. He is a Yoga Alliance certified RYT 200 and enjoys spending time in nature, playing basketball, and exploring the Bay Area's vibrant live music scene.
