Description

"Forest Bathing" at the Herbary

Leave behind your stress and to-do list for a morning and be part of this popular practice that is sweeping the globe, where mindfulness meets nature. Engage your 5 senses as well as your mind, heart and spirit in this soulful outdoor immersion and discover what Mother Nature has to teach us about ourselves and the world around us. Forest bathing or 'shinrin-yoko' was developed in Japan in 1982 as a meditative approach to being in nature, in this case the beautiful and expansive grounds of the Herbary. Scientific studies suggest that spending time in a natural environment leads to lower stress levels, improved psychological and physiological health, elevated mood and more. Facilitated activities are designed to leave you feeling fully present, alive, and awake. Appropriate for adults of all ages and physical abilities. Light refreshments will be served.
