Forest Bathing, or shinrin-yoku, is the deliberate practice of immersion in nature using mindfulness and the senses. This practice originated in Japan and allows the body, mind, and spirit to relax and rejuvenate surrounded by the healing powers of nature. In this session, we'll first discuss ways to soak up the natural world around us; then each participant will enjoy individual time exploring the Japanese Garden. Wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing, and bring a seat cushion if you wish.
Instructor: Randy Sabbagh is a Garden volunteer and a deep appreciator of the calming effect of nature. He has studied forest bathing and is an enthusiastic practitioner.
