Event description

Description

In Japan, Shinrin Yoku has become a popular health and wellness practice. Today scientists, in that country, have provided biomarkers as to why time in nature is so good for you. Shinrin Yoku means to bathe in the atmosphere of the forest. A combination of the wood oils in forested areas and our sensory experience create a powerful healing tool for our mind and bodies. The good news is you don’t have to be good at it you just need to slow down and tune into your senses to receive the healing qualities of the forest. Join Ronna Schneberger, a forest therapy guide and trainer, to learn about the history, science and practice of forest bathing.
