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 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.
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 a water bottle and maybe a little snack if you think you'll get hungry. No experience necessary, beginners very welcome.
Fully vaccinated people are not required to wear masks, but of course may choose to. Unvaccinated folks will need to wear masks when we gather up as a group if social distancing is not possible. This is on the honor system, so please do your part to help keep everyone safe.
