Details

Welcome summer and almost Midsummer Night with a forest therapy walk. Come join us to connect your senses to this magical time in the cycle of the year. A tea ceremony and light snacks will be provided at the end of the walk.

Also known as "forest bathing" and "shinrin yoku", Forest therapy enhances well-being through gentle immersion in forests and other natural environments. It is a way to connect with nature, yet it is more than that. It is a way to awaken deep and nourishing parts of oneself that often don't receive a lot of attention in our fast paced, technology-driven lives. It is not a science-oriented naturalist activity or an athletic activity, but rather a profound, sensory-focused experience.
