Add to my Calendar
Join us as we are "bathed" or immersed in the sensory experiences of time among trees. Shinrin-yoku (a.k.a. forest bathing or forest immersion) involves mostly walking slowly through a wooded area, incorporating plenty of chances for standing still or sitting while you appreciate the details of the beauty around you, taking time to re-connect with the natural world. We will start with a brief explanation of shinrin-yoku practice, plus calling the corners and a brief meditation to prepare us. Then we'll spend an hour or more on our own, gently and reverently immersing ourselves in the sensory experience of the woods. At the end, we'll re-assemble and share insights from our experiences. We will be outdoors for the full time.
