Curious about forest bathing? Forest bathing is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku – “taking in the forest atmosphere.” Slow down, awaken your senses, and enjoy the wonders of nature as you deeply relax in the forest. On this 75 -minute intro to forest bathing walk, you’ll be guided on a gentle, mindful stroll. Along the way, your certified forest therapy guide, Regan Stacey, will offer you a series of sensory-opening “invitations” designed to help you connect with the natural world in your own authentic way. Leave your stresses behind and connect with the healing powers of nature. The walk is about a half-mile over easy to moderate terrain.

Forest bathing is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku – taking in the forest atmosphere. As a growing global wellness movement, it is backed by nearly 40 years of scientific research on the holistic benefits of immersing yourself in nature. These benefits include reduced stress and blood pressure, increased creativity and focus, improved mood and sleep, and a boost to immune functions.
