Full Moon Forest Bathing with A Greener Mind

July 24 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 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.

Location

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.

Weather

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.

COVID Precautions

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.
