A Guided Walk - Forest Bathing
Experience the relaxing practice of forest bathing: shinrin-yoku. Bathe in the atmosphere of the forest through mindful engagement of the senses. Studies suggest that a regular practice of forest bathing may be associated with a reduction in blood pressure, heart rate and stress hormones. During this walk, the guide invites ways to engage the senses for closer connection with the surrounding nature. You will move slowly and mindfully through the forest as you are guided through a series of invitations to engage your senses for closer connection with the surrounding nature. The walk begins at 9 a.m. (this does not include travel time to get to the walk starting point) and lasts 2.5 hours. Detailed information about location will be emailed out about a week before the walk.
