    • Shinrin-yoku, a Japanese term meaning “forest bathing,” is a guided mindful nature practice where participants are invited to explore their natural surroundings via various sensory experiences.  Research finds that time spent in nature, in this way, offers health benefits ranging from improved mental wellbeing and memory to reducing cortisol levels, fighting cancer, and improving heart health.  Join us for shinrin-yoku on these dates and locations, and click on the links below for more information and to register.
