Event description

Description

On this unique forest bathing experience, you'll be guided on a gentle, mindful stroll through gardens designed and created by the late Hawai‘i artist Hiroshi Tagami. The grounds of the Kahalu‘u Gallery and Gardens are an ideal setting to leave behind the stresses of the world and get in touch with the healing powers of the natural world. As we move through the garden and follow the paved switchback which descends into the forested gully at the back of the property, your certified forest therapy guide will offer a series of “invitations” to help you re-connect with nature and with yourself through your senses.

Kahaluu Gardens path

"Forest Bathing" (translated from "shinrin-yoku," an established public health practice in Japan) is a growing global wellness movement backed by 30 years of scientific research on the physical and psychological benefits of immersing yourself in nature. See more, including recent national media coverage on forest bathing at www.forestbathinghi.com. Forest Bathing Hawai'i was recently ranked #3 in the world of "incredible once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences" by Forbes.com.

Please bring water, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, mosquito repellant, a casual backpack to hold your stuff (including a rain jacket), and walking sticks if you need them. For your safety and comfort, it's recommended that you wear close-toed shoes w/ good traction; light-weight long-sleeved shirt & long pants.

Includes tea and snack, mats to sit on, and free entrance into the art galleries after the walk. You'll find in those galleries paintings and giclees by Hiroshi Tagami and Michael Powell, ceramics, sculpture, photography, and jewelry.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Kahalu‘u Gallery and Gardens is located in a residential neighborhood on the windward side of O‘ahu, an approximately 40-minute drive from Waikīkī. Take the more scenic H-3 freeway, if time allows, to experience the stunning Ko'olau mountains up close.
