Forest Therapy Workshop

First Day of Fall

Thursday, September 22 | 6:00 – 7:30 pm

Celebrate the first day of Autumn and experience the seasonal changes with an evening of “forest bathing” in the Garden. “Forest Bathing” or Forest Therapy, is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, a research-based holistic practice which uses immersion in natural environments to enhance health and wellness.

Join Forest Therapy Guide Emmie Brenzel, for a slow wander in the gardens using interactive invitations to reconnect with the senses and awaken the imagination. There are opportunities for silence, observation, and listening, interspersed with optional group sharing. The nature walk concludes with a closing tea ceremony. Dress for the weather with layers of clothing recommended. Walks are limited to twelve participants.

Space is limited!

Cost: $20/members and $30/nonmembers  (Not a member? Join or renew today!)
