About this event
You are invited to ring in the Spring with this special Earth Day Mindful Walk. 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 Guide Molly Freiberg of Inhabit & Rise 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.
What to expect & what to bring
This event will include periods of slow walking, mostly on trails, and may include periods of standing or sitting in the woods. Please remember to dress in weather-appropriate layers. We walk slowly and take time to sit and linger on these walks. You won't be building up heat so think warm socks, boots, and non-cotton layers. Bring water and a snack. No experience necessary, beginners very welcome.
