About the event
Come experience the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku under the Strawberry Moon.
In Shinrin-Yoku, translated as Forest Bathing, people are guided through a sequence of invitations to slow down, be present with our senses, and experience the natural environment in a deeper way. Research has shown the impact of Forest Bathing on our health is substantial: lowering blood pressure, boosting immune function, improving quality of sleep, and decreasing stress & anxiety. This practice creates a path to reconnect and deepen our relationship to nature, to others, to our communities, and to ourselves. The health of nature and the health of people are woven together.
Come enjoy the Hammond Garden the way it was intended. Blankets and seat cushions will be provided. A seasonal foraged tea will be served. $30 per person. Adults only please.
