This group is for anyone who'd like to explore Nature from a simple, yet specific practice of sensory awareness. Forest Bathing by Dr. Qing LI, the Chairman of the Japanese Society of Forest Medicine will be our guide as we learn in community. Note that I am not a certified guide, rather consider this an experiential 'Nature Book Club'. ALL fitness levels are welcome. This is gentle walking, rather than hiking.
Currently I'm limiting the size of each event, so please ONLY RSVP upon a solid commitment. Thank you so much!
First Friday Bath ushering in Spring! For anyone who'd like to experience the the first awakening of Spring in Nature, it's been delightful with the birds, the mud! and the new blooms slowly sprouting. Our senses come alive to the birthing of this new season. Thursday will be wet so bring your boots!
Spring is calling for us to join in renewal as the colors begin to return! As of now the forecast looks pretty promising for those who are ready to get out and bathe. If you are interested in joining us but the time does not work, please post a preferred time (with the temps going up mornings are also a great option). This Saturday will stay at noon.
Location is sent via message to RSVPs who I confirm with a day or two prior. Last minute signups are fine provided I catch it and can send you the location.
We are also going into bug season, so take care with your needs. Since we are typically on groomed paths it does minimize tick exposure, but is something we still need to personally manage.
This is the first 90 minute Bath. Forest Bathing is typically 2- 4 hours and I've found that in order to move into the experience in a more embodied way does take a bit more time, so for anyone who'd like to join me for a deeper immersion, this is a good starting point.
We're going into bug season (including ticks) so please take care of yourself in whatever way works for you. We are mainly on groomed paths, but not exclusively.
(Yes... Longwood in the Fall... I loved bringing the color out)
