Join us as we develop an appreciation of our local lands and nature in general, subtle and mindful ways. 

Forest bathing is the practice of immersing yourself in nature in a mindful way, using your senses to derive a whole range of benefits for your physical, mental, emotional, and social health. It is also known as Shinrin-yoku. ‘Shinrin’ means forest and ‘Yoku’ stands for bathing. The idea took birth in Japan in the 1980’s and proved to be a very effective tool to reduce the ill effects of a hectic life and stressful work environment.

A Guide will lead the group through the forest offering skillfully crafted meditation invitations which will allow participants to open their senses and experience the forest in a new way, even if they’ve been hiking in the forest for years. Spending time in the forest has known health benefits. This practice is a blending of nature and mindfulness, while bathing in the beneficial environment of the forest.

This program is suitable for all fitness levels, and is designed as a slow wander through the forest with attention to opening the sense and experiencing the forest in a new way, while receiving the health and wellness the forest naturally offers.
