Forest Bathing or Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting health and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. Forest Bathing walks encourage a deep connection to Nature and provide us with the opportunity to unplug and step back from stress to practice balance, practice peace, and find the stillness within.

Participants will experience a slow, mindful walk through the forest while being guided to a full sensory experience. Participants will be invited into both a personal, reflective experience and an opportunity to share their observations with their fellow walkers.

The program will be a 2 1/2 hour guided walk with a certified guide of Forest Bathing. We will cover under a mile over easy terrain with frequent stops. This walk will be suitable for most ability levels. More detailed directions will be provided upon registration.
