Japanese Shinrinyoku or Forest Bathing

  • Mountain Hollow Medicinals 603 Urie Road Craftsbury Common, VT, 05827 United States (map)

With Rebecca Beidler from Peace of Earth Farm

The Japanese concept of Shinrinyoku or Forest Bathing promotes the health benefits of spending time in nature (especially a forested setting) just being present, slowing down, and observing natural surroundings with all of our senses.

Rebecca will guide us on a forest walk involving slow, quiet walking with the invitation to focus on a particular sense or activity (for example- notice what is moving, observe the light and darkness, spend time touching trees/moss/water...). After each invitation the group will come together and share observations before moving onto a new sense. This guided walk ends by sharing a cup of tea made from some representative plants from the area. 

Additional refreshments will be served in the Yurt. Please dress appropriate for weather conditions.

Cost for this workshop is $10 per person.
