For this forest bathing session on Earth Day, give the earth the gift of your presence and attention. Slow down, rest, and deepen your relationship with the living world and remember your belonging to nature and the interconnectedness of all living beings.

A forest bathing session starts off with a guided meditation deepening into each of the senses, and then you’ll be led through a series of invitations that offer the opportunity for deeper relaxation and connection with ourselves and the living world.

We will come together for optional sharing and close the experience with wildcrafted tea.

Forest bathing is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to “forest bath” and just means to take in the atmosphere of the forest through our senses (leave your swimsuit at literal bathing required!). It is a practice of spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness and remembering our connection to nature and each other.

Decades of studies have discovered a wide range of health benefits associated with this practice, including stress relief, better sleep, lowered blood pressure and inflammation, and improved immunity.
