Forest Bathing is a Japanese wellness practice that welcomes us to take in the forest atmosphere with all of our senses. Nature has the ability to calm, inspire, and restore us in all seasons -- so let’s take some much-needed time to receive what is offered.
Kripalu-Certified Mindful Outdoor Guides Molly Freiberg and Sandy Wilson will guide our group to engage with nature in the present moment, as we experience it through all of our senses, to appreciate the complex wonders we often don’t notice when we are rushed or distracted. During this walk, we will be sauntering slowly on gently rolling forested trails.
No experience is necessary -- beginners are welcome! Bring water and a snack. Masks are required when we first meet up and when we gather, but may be removed while we are walking in the forest with at least 10’ between participants.
If weather is chilly, bundle up in layers to keep yourself warm. We will be walking slowly, and sometimes sitting, so we will not be building much heat. Wool or outdoorsy synthetics will keep you warm even with perspiration. (No cotton layers!)
Tight shoes will make you colder, so wear roomy boots with extra socks if your feet usually get chilly. If you usually bring water, consider bringing a warm beverage to help keep you warm.
All participants will be prepaid and pre-registered, so no contact with money or sign-in sheets is necessary on the day of the event.
