About the Event

Forest Bathing, also known as Forest Therapy, is a slow, mindful immersion in Nature. During a two and a half hour period, we move through the Forest and connect with the environment using all of our senses. This practice is deeply grounding and has many health benefits. The total distance traveled is often less than a mile. Forest Bathing is not a hike, and it is not a plant identification walk.

Leading the session will be Emily Hampton, an Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFT) certified guide. She is a graduate of Stanford University and a 23 year veteran of the U.S. Navy. Emily is also a certified yoga teacher and Nidra meditation teacher.

Please wear long pants and walking shoes, and bring water and insect repellant. This event is free and open to the public.
