Shinrin-Yoku, Forest Bathing 

Join Anna Marie, certified forest therapy guide trained in the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFT) way for a safe, guided Shinrin-Yoku, or Forest Bathing experience that will balance your body, mind, and spirit. A forest bathing walk shifts our attention from our thinking minds toward our senses. Through a series of open-ended invitations by the guide, participants will then be ready to receive whatever the forest has to offer each individual in unique ways. It calms the mind and connects our bodies to the natural world around us, enabling us to receive its benefits.
