Winter Forest Bathing Experience

January 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am



Whether you’re looking for a way to beat the winter blues, keep your new year’s resolution to improve your health, or simply looking for opportunities to meet new people you will enjoy winter forest bathing.

Come experience the transformative energy and beauty of winter with the practice of forest bathing. Different then other nature connection experiences such as hiking and birdwatching, forest bathing follows the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku which invites you to slow down and mindfully connect with nature through all of your senses.

Benefits of Forest Bathing:

  • Lowers stress.
  • Decreases blood pressure and cortisol levels.
  • Promotes relaxation.
  • Enhances mindfulness and psychological well-being.
  • Improves attention, mood, and creativity.

Give your body and mind a chance to rest and restore while taking in the subtleties and wonder of nature. Certified instructor, Maureen Stine, will guide you through a sensory awakening meditation followed by a series of explorational invitations and conclude with time for sharing around a campfire and tea.

The walk will take place outside in nature so please dress appropriately for the conditions. Participants are encouraged to bring their own portable chair or stool to sit on during the meditation. Space is limited so register early.

Class Size: Min. 6 / Max. 15

Class Fee: $20.00

Thanks to a grant from The Americana Foundation we are able to offer this class at a discount. Class is usually $35 per person.
