  • Description:

    Spending quiet, contemplative time in the forest feels, in many ways, like coming home to a peaceful place inside the heart. The practice of shinrin-yoku (“Forest Bathing”) is a form of guided nature meditation, an “immersion” into the space of trees, plants and inhabitants of the forest.

    In this practice, specific invitations are offered to cultivate a deep relationship with the natural world by engaging the senses while noticing the effects of this connection on the body, heart, and spirit. Research has shown this practice to be significantly beneficial for reducing stress, strengthening the immune system, inspiring creativity, and enhancing a sense of well-being.

    Join us for this gentle excursion into the woods to explore and discover ourselves in relationship with the world around us.
