Have you heard about Shinrin-yoku or Forest bathing? Here is an opportunity to take a walk and experience the practice for yourself. Shinrin-yoku originated in Japan and is gaining popularity in the United States for its documented health benefits. A centering and calming restorative practice, it promotes balance and restored vitality through a quality of presence and heightened sensory awareness. These walks are led by certified Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT) practitioners. Visit natureandforesttherapy.earth for more info about this practice.
