Earth Day Forest Bathing

April 22 @ 5:30 am - 7:30 am

$30

Forest Bathing is a slow-moving, deeply sensory, mindful and “bodyful” walk in nature that has shown to result in measurable physiological, cognitive and emotional benefits. Much like walking meditation or yoga, these activities can be practiced on one’s own, almost anywhere, and yet the benefits greatly increase with regular practice. And much like meditation or yoga, the experience can be significantly more immersive when facilitated by properly trained and certified guides.

Over the course of this walk, you will be given a series of invitations—suggested ways to connect to your surroundings. The experience will be mostly silent, honors each participant’s personal space and covers just about a mile and-a-half over generally flat surfaces. At the end of each invitation, the group will have an opportunity to share a few words of reflection, integrating the experience both internally and within community. The walk concludes with tea and light snacks. The walk will be led by a guide from Silvae Spiritus Nature & Forest Therapy, who has been Certified by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs.

Preregistration is required. Registration typically closes the day before the program at noon. Program fees are nonrefundable and transfers are not permitted.
