Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing): Not Just Any Walk in the Woods
Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Experience deep nature connection on this guided forest bathing retreat with Certified Forest Therapy Guide and award-winning author, Nadine Mazzola. 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 walk will take place in Stoneham, MA. The exact meeting location will be included in the Registration Confirmation email. Wear comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear for walking. Students will be asked to wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines. Group size is limited to 10. All walks meet rain or shine (rain often enhances sensory experience and makes for some of our most memorable walks.)
