Guided, Restorative Woodland Walk

Event Details

The Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing) is a slow, sensory-based walk in the woods, during which we focus on the sights, sounds, smells, feels, and tastes of nature. This is not a naturalist exploration nor a fitness trek; this walk is about soaking in the health benefits of spending relaxed time in nature. It’s also about tending and mending our relationships with nature, ourselves, and others. Join us and experience nature’s power to soothe, refresh, and open your heart. Who knows what surprises nature may have in store?

There are no requirements or experience necessary – just come as you are. Your guide, Douglas Jones, Ph.D., is an experienced guide, trained by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs.
