Nighttime Forest Bathing with A Greener Mind
September 9, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
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.
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.
· All class ticket sales are considered a donation to Fox Haven and help us to fulfill our mission. Full refunds (minus a 20% processing fee) will be given to any participant canceling at least 30 days prior to the scheduled class date. Due to the nature of full series commitments, no refunds will be processed once the series has started.
· Enrollment cannot be transferred to another class. If you are within the 30-day cancellation period, it is best to request a refund and sign up for the desired replacement.
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.

In the event that inclement weather is predicted ahead of an event, you will receive 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or rescheduling. Otherwise, the event is assumed to be rain or shine. An alternative location may be provided if shelter is needed. We do not offer refunds for postponed events or no-shows. However, if Fox Haven cancels, a full refund will be issued.
