Fill your Nature Rx during Earth Week with a Taste of Shinrin-yoku 

Shinrin-yoku is a practice of spending time in nature and forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness. There is a specific intention to connect with nature for healing by mindfully moving through the landscape in ways that cultivate presence, open all the senses, and create opportunities for nature communication. Walks typically last three hours, but today we'll spend thirty minutes introducing the concept of Shinrin-yoku, the benefits, and guiding participants through an invitation.

We hope you develop a taste for Shinrin-yoku and join our monthly Free First Fridays walks or sign up for our Tune your Senses series, Forest Yoga, or Celebrate the Seasons walks.

Shinrin-yoku walks are led by Certified Forest Therapy guides trained by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy.

Limit of 10 people per walk.

Please complete our participant release form and email or bring with you on the event date.
