Forest Bathing: October

Registration for this class is now closed. We hope to see you next month!

Forest Bathing, or shinrin-yoku, is the deliberate practice of immersion in nature using mindfulness and the senses. This practice originated in Japan in the 1980s and allows the body, mind, and spirit to relax and rejuvenate surrounded by the healing powers of nature. We will discuss ways to soak up the natural world around us; then each participant will enjoy individual time exploring the Japanese Garden. Wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing, and bring a seat cushion if you wish. After class, explore the Gardens at your leisure; registration includes Garden admission for the day.
