Forest Bathing Workshop
May 7, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
For more than four decades, Ellen Horowitz has connected people to nature through her work as an outdoor educator, writer, and Certified Forest Therapy Guide with ANFT (Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides).
Forest bathing walks are designed to open the door to the healing properties of nature. Unlike a typical nature walk or hike, forest bathing focuses on slowing down, tuning into your senses and deepening your connection with the More-Than-Human-World. We accomplish this through a series of simple, sensory “invitations.”
Forest bathing (called Shinrin Yoku in Japan) is a research-based activity that offers healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. Numerous studies have shown that forest baths offer powerful health benefits, including reduced blood pressure and stress levels, a stronger immune system, better cognition, and improved energy levels.
