Full Moon Forest Therapy Walk (In Person)

Tuesday, February 15 | 5:00 – 6:30 pm

Planet earth receives an influx of energy from reflected light during a Full Moon, especially during an eclipse season. Experience the Garden and the energy of the “Frosty Moon” and twilight during this forest therapy walk. Forest Therapy is a research-based practice which uses immersion in natural environments to enhance health and wellness. Inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku or “forest bathing,” its health benefits include stress reduction, improved mood and sleep, and increased immune functioning. Join Forest Therapy Guide Emmie Brenzel for a slow walk in the Garden using interactive invitations to awaken your senses and allow you to mindfully connect with nature, the celestial energies, and the more-than-human-world. There will be opportunities to engage silently with nature and to share together as a group if you choose. The walk concludes with a closing tea ceremony. Please dress for the weather with hats, gloves, and extra layers of clothing or a lap blanket. Activities will be leisurely, and temperatures can feel cooler when seated or moving slowly.

Space is limited!
