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

can accommodate.

The walk will end with a tea gathering to celebrate our time

together and to pause and appreciate the place where we are.
