$50.00 Spring Equinox Forest Bathing - Rescheduled!

The Japanese have practiced forest bathing, or shinrin yoku, since the 1980’s to combat the symptoms of stress experienced by technology and office workers. The practice rose in popularity in the United States and elsewhere during the pandemic as a powerful medicine for chronic burnout and loneliness. Recent research has demonstrated the vast mental health benefits of forest bathing, and doctors are now prescribing it directly to their patients. As the climate crisis unfolds, forest bathing also serves as a powerful restorative practice to re-connect ourselves to nature and to each other, enabling us to sustain long-term commitment to a healthy planet. 

In this guided forest bathing walk we will begin with some gentle mindful movement and sensory awareness exercises to open our minds, hearts, and bodies. Your guide will then offer three custom invitations designed to prompt reflection and noticing through your senses. The walk will conclude with a serving of herbal tea.
