Celebrate Spring and our connection to the sun with a gentle forest bathing walk. The Spring Equinox holds a powerful energy for growth and clarity. Take this time for yourself to relax, connect deeply to nature, and create space to illuminate what seeds you want to plant and what you want to harvest in the months ahead. 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 (no literal bathing required!). It is a practice of spending time in natural areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness. Your guide will offer a guided sensory meditation and optional invitations to dive deep into sensory experience, activating the parasympathetic nervous system to relax and restore your body. These invitations also encourage the remembrance of belonging to nature and building deeper connections and healthy relationships with the more-than-human world. The experience concludes with wildcrafted tea. 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.
