In Japan, the practice of “forest bathing” is decades old. Shinrin-yoku, or “taking in the forest atmosphere,” is the simple but profound practice of walking through a forest and opening your senses. Experience for yourself what research has told us for years — that spending time under a forest canopy can boost your immune system, lower blood pressure, accelerate healing, and so much more. Jill Emmelhainz, a certified forest therapy guide, will show us how to use our senses to connect with nature. Rain or shine!
Meet at the BFEC Picnic Pavilion.
