The wellness, mindfulness, and alternative healing arts industries have historically extracted wisdom teachings from marginalized peoples, commodified those teachings, then placed those teachings behind a paywall only accessible to those with wealth. Financial barriers and unwelcoming learning environments make accessing wellness opportunities extremely challenging -- particularly for working class people, people of color, immigrants, religious minorities, LGBTQAI+ and Two Spirit people, and people with disabilities.
These barriers are harmful human creations, unparalleled in nature. In fact, we need only look to the forest for a better way. Beneath the forest floor, vast fungal networks break down, recycle, and redistribute nutrients between organisms. This distribution network provides the foundation for a balanced and healthy ecosystem of connected individuals.
In this spirit, Forest Path is committed to providing low-cost learning opportunities, a variety of free services, as well as an Equity Scholarship for members of marginalized communities.
