9:00 AM - 10:30 AM    Forest Bathing-Meditation in Nature - Forest Bathing-Meditation in Nature-Fridays
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. Who: Adults 18yrs and olderWhat: Forest Bathing at PMECWhen: Friday May 7th and/or May 14th 9:00am - 10:30amWhere: Peabody Mill Environment Center. 66 Brook Rd Amherst, NH 03031Fee: $15.R $20.NR

9:00 AM - 10:30 AM    Forest Bathing-Meditation in Nature - Forest Bathing-Meditation in Nature-Fridays
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. Who: Adults 18yrs and olderWhat: Forest Bathing at PMECWhen: Friday May 7th and/or May 14th 9:00am - 10:30amWhere: Peabody Mill Environment Center. 66 Brook Rd Amherst, NH 03031Fee: $15.R $20.NR
