Come immerse yourself in this morning nature  retreat full of discovery and imagination. Join a certified forest therapy guide for a relaxing 3 hour experience in the forests of the peaceful Arboretum grounds. Through a series of invitations, you’ll have the opportunity to be present in the moment, deepening your connection with nature and community, and enjoying the many gifts nature has to offer.

Your guide will share mindfulness practices designed to connect you more deeply to your inner landscapes, as well as the world around you. Inspired by Shinrin-Yoku, the Japanese art of immersing oneself in a forest environment, a forest bathing walk invites you to spend time in nature in a way that invites healing for ourselves, our fraught ecosystems, and our community. Awakening your child-like sense of wonder and awe may be a sweet side-effect. It is true nature therapy!
