Forest Bathing Walk!

June 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am

‘Bathe’ in the forest atmosphere using your senses, mindfulness and short guided meditations

The practice of forest bathing means to immerse oneself in the forest and soak in the atmosphere through the senses. Today’s walk at an easy pace will focus on connecting to nature through mindfulness, as we explore our senses and the present moment through short, guided, meditations and breathing exercises in the forest. Through this practice, we aim to deepen our connection to our mind, our body, and the life around us in nature.

At the end of our walk, we’ll sample a tea made from pine and spruce needles foraged on the Weis property, with some seasonal variations throughout the year. This tea is meant to show our gratitude and appreciation and is a way of tasting and taking in the land to further connect to it.

Forest bathing has been shown to help decrease stress levels and anxiety, and helps improve the immune system and symptoms of depression, to name a few benefits.

Come explore a new way of walking through the forest!
