Forest Bathing


Inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku or Forest Bathing, we offer guided sensory experiences designed to slow down, open the senses, come into the present moment, and explore with curiosity. Through a series of gentle, invitation-based engagements, participants are encouraged to interact with the environment in a deeply personal and reflective manner. This evidence-based practice has been shown to improve physical, mental, and emotional health all while nurturing deep connection with nature, oneself and others. The complete experience lasts between 1 and 2 hours.
