International Forest Bathing Day is where we collectively experience the medicine of the forest, with guided forest bathing walks happening all over the globe.
Witness the magical transformation your mind, body, and spirit will move through as the mind takes a well-earned break, the body gets some well-deserved attention and rejuvenation, and spirit gets to connect with the beautiful bigger picture and serves up a dose of wonder, fascination, gratitude, and connection.
A forest bathing walk starts off with a guided meditation deepening into each of the senses, and then you’ll be led through a series of invitations that offer the opportunity for deeper relaxation and connection with ourselves and the living world. We will come together for optional sharing and close the experience with wildcrafted tea.
Forest bathing is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to “forest bath” and just means to take in the atmosphere of the forest (leave your swimsuit at home…no literal bathing required!). It is a practice of spending time in natural areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness, and remembering our connection to nature and each other.
Decades of studies have discovered a wide range of health benefits associated with this practice, including stress relief, better sleep, lowered blood pressure and inflammation, and improved immunity.
