Wonder in the Woods: Introduction to Forest Bathing
September 23 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Come to Caponi Art Park to slow down, de-stress from your daily routine, and deepen your connection to nature. Shinrin-yoku, or “forest bathing,” is different from other nature experiences such as hiking or birding; in forest bathing, we will be slowing down with intentionality and engaging all of our senses through guided activities. This Japanese art form and reflective practice, shinrin-yoku, loosely translates to “taking in the forest through our senses.” Give your mind and body some time to rest, wander, and wonder in nature. We finish the session with tea and snacks.
Join Kristen Mastel, Certified Forest Therapy Guide and Outreach Librarian, to discover the art of Shinrin-yoku and all of its health and wellness benefits.
