Event description
A nourishing event from the comfort of your favorite outdoor or indoor space, Forest Bathing will rejuvenate you in time for the holidays!

About this Event

Based on the Japanese practice, Shinrin-yoku, Forest Bathing is the practice of being in the natural world with the intention to slow down, awaken the senses and be fully present to the beauty, mystery and healing energy of nature. It is an opportunity to reconnect with the natural world, yourself and others.

In this very special Forest Bathing event, you will be virutally guided by Darlene Rooney, certified Forest Therapy Guide. During this virtual event, you'll be part of a group, yet able to expore the invitations privately and in your own way if you choose to.

You choose where you want to be - a new walking trail, favorite park, your back yard, even from inside your home - wherever you find yourself, you will be able to dive into this contemplative practice and receive all the benefits of this nourishing process.

Although this is a virtual event, you are always in control of what you want to share, including your observations, your video and your voice. Participate in the group discussion and share your experience, or just listen in. You can choose to have your video turned on or off for this - all that's needed is an ear bud to hear Darlene's voice as she guides you through a series of invitations to explore and observe your surroundings, either indoors or outdoors.

Some frequently asked questions about Shinrin-yoku/Forest Bathing:

WHAT HAPPENS ON A FOREST BATHING WALK? Unlike a hike, there is no destination on a forest bathing walk. We are encouraged to intentionally slow down. As your guide, I will lead the group in a series of carefully crafted sensory connecting "invitations." The invitations offer simple, natural pathways to presence. In practicing the invitations, we will slowly saunter on and off the trail, having time to be mindful, to be playful, and to be contemplative. I will hold a safe and open space for each person to be exactly where they are. We end each walk with tea foraged from the forest and healthy snacks to share.

WHY DO I NEED A GUIDE? Having a guide allows one to fully relax and settle into the practice. Being guided on a Forest Bathing walk supports not having to think about timing or choosing what to do next. Staying focused on the practice is sometimes much easier with a guide, similar to having a teacher for a yoga class. We are all capable of practicing Forest Bathing or yoga on our own, and that is highly encouraged, and there are many benefits to being in a group setting and sharing the practice with others.
