Restorative Forest Bathing

Forest bathing (a.k.a Shinrin-yoku) is a Japanese practice that started in 1982, to promote spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness and happiness. 

By slowing down and being aware of yourself and your surroundings, you gain a new sense of appreciation and fulfillment only nature can provide. 

This program engages all the senses with nature through a combination of suggested and self-guided activities.  Come slow life down and connect to the healing powers of nature.
