Join Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide Lori Carter to
experience nature’s power to soothe, refresh, and open your
heart. Based on the the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku
(roughly translated to Forest Bathing) is a slow, sensory-based
walk in the woods, during which, through various “invitations”, or
activities, given to you, we focus on the sights, sounds, smells,
feels and tastes of nature. This is neither a naturalist exploration
nor a fitness trek; this walk is about soaking in the vast benefits
of spending relaxed time in nature. It’s also about tending and
mending our relationships with nature, ourselves, and others.
There are no requirements – just come as you are. If there are any
accessibility concerns please let us know ahead of time and we
The walk will end with a tea gathering to celebrate our time
together and to pause and appreciate the place where we are.
