Take a break from the stresses of urban living to experience forest bathing, a relational practice that invites you to slow down and immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and smells of the forest.
Forest bathing can foster a deeper sense of intimacy with both the natural world and your authentic nature.
Covering about one mile, a forest bathing walk is a non-strenuous activity, in which you may be standing or sitting for periods up to 20 minutes. Through a relaxing series of invitations, be guided to experience the land through all of your senses. As you move through each invitation, there is time for sharing with the group, along with deep listening to others. The walk concludes with a special tea ceremony and snacks.
Please wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes for uneven terrain. Please bring water and a mask for indoor use of the restrooms and/or outdoors if unvaccinated.
