Full Moon “Forest Bathing”

With Ozark Forest Therapy

Tuesday, November 8 | 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Full Moon shining through Trees. Exposure balanced on the Moon. Nikon D800e. Converted from RAW.

Enjoy the Botanical Gardens and the changing celestial skyline while experiencing “Forest Bathing” under the energy of the “Frosty” Full Moon. “Forest Bathing” or Forest Therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku, a research-based wholistic practice which uses immersion in natural environments to enhance health and wellness. Join Forest Therapy Guide Emmie Brenzel, for a slow wander through the gardens during sunset, twilight, and the rising full moon. Participants will be guided in interactive experiences that encourage connection with senses and awakening of imagination. There are opportunities for silence, observation,

listening, and optional group sharing. The nature walk concludes with a closing tea ceremony. Please dress for the weather with hats, gloves, and layers of clothing recommended. Activities will be leisurely, and temperatures can feel cooler when seated or moving slowly. Walks are limited to twelve participants.

Cost: Members/$20 and Nonmembers/$30 (Not a member? Register here.)
