Full Moon Forest Bathing with A Greener Mind
November 19, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In this 2 hour session, the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy trained guide Josh Schwartz of A Greener Mind will walk you through sensory invitations to help you slow down, awaken your senses, and reconnect with nature.
This event will take place in Fox Haven’s 3-acre organically-managed heritage apple orchard located about 1/4 a mile from the big red barn. To enter, walk up the mowed path behind the big red barn and around the fence on the righthand side. The gate entrance is on the right.
What is Forest Bathing
Forest bathing is a practice that supports health and wellness through guided immersion in forests and other environments to promote the well-being of both people and the land. It is inspired by Shinrin-yoku, the Japanese practice of “Forest Bathing.” where people spend time in forested areas to enhance health, wellness, and happiness.
On Forest bathing walks, participants are guided through a clearly defined sequence of invitations to slow down, allow the senses to open, and experience the environment to deepen the reciprocal relationship between people and the forest. This supports the wholeness and well-being of both.
This event will be held in most weather conditions. If the event must be canceled due to inclimate weather we will notify you as soon as possible via email and refund all tickets.
About LandBack Tax
Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.
The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.
