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.
Participants are required to wear masks and maintain proper social distancing during the event. If you are experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms or may have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19, please let us know and you will receive a refund.
