Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing)

  • Saturday, Oct. 19th, 2019
  • 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Over the course of this two hour walk, participants will be given a series of invitations - suggested ways to connect to their surroundings. The experience will be mostly silent, honor each participant’s personal space, and cover just about a mile and-a-half over generally flat surfaces. It is encouraged that you consider going without your mobile cellular devices for the duration – but this is not required and is solely dependent on your comfort level. At the end of each invitation exploration, the group will gather and share a few words. It’s okay if you’d like to pass on sharing – sharing is always optional. The evening will conclude with a short tea ceremony. The walk will be guided by Leigha Horton, a Certified Guide and mentor with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs, and Co-Founder of  Silvae Spiritus Nature & Forest Therapy.  “The Forest is the therapist. The Guide opens the doors.”
