Forest bathing allows you to slow down and reconnect with nature, calming your mind and lifting your spirit.
“The song you heard singing in the leaf when you were a child is singing still.” - Mary Oliver
Take 2.5 hours to unplug, unwind, and discover forest bathing on the lovely grounds at Whittemore CCC amid the vibrant green foliage. This experience is a slow, mindful walk with several open-ended invitations led by a certified Forest Therapy guide that invites participants to use all of their senses to connect with the natural world uniquely.
The walk will conclude with a tea ceremony and light snacks.
For more information about forest bathing or forest therapy and its many potential physical and mental health benefits, check out the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy’s website.
