Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing): Not Just Any Walk in the Woods


Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Fall 2022

Experience a deep nature connection on this guided forest bathing retreat. Peel the layers of stress away and support healing and wellbeing by experiencing the medicine of the forest. We’ll do a series of relaxing activities to engage our senses, deepen nature connection, hone intuition, and connect with the natural world around us. This walk covers a total distance of about 1.5 miles on a well-maintained but at times uneven trail. Please note: The exact meeting location will be emailed as part of your Registration Confirmation email. Wear comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear for walking. All walks meet rain or shine (rain often enhances sensory experience and makes for some of our most memorable walks.) Middlesex Fells Reservation, Stoneham: Sept. 25 Hapgood Wright Town Forest, Concord: Oct. 16
