Do you need more than a short vacation from the bustle of fast-paced life? The constant daily flurry may cause you to forget how to slow down, enjoy precious moments, and quiet your running mind.

Forest bathing is a restorative, joyful practice that is scientifically proven to enhance wellness, reduce stress, improve concentration, boost your immune system, sharpen senses and deepen your relationship with nature.

You will walk along trails of Hickory Hill Park in a slow, relaxed way that helps you learn to still your mind and enjoy the present moment. Each class has a different focus, intermixing playful, exploratory activities during the delightful stroll. Lessons about plants, birds, insects and the ecological health of forests will be woven into each walk.

You should be comfortable walking on uneven terrain. Dress appropriately for the weather and for sitting in the woods. Small sitting mats will be provided. Please bring items for your comfort: water bottle, insect repellent, hat, long pants, walking stick, full-length mat or portable chair. If desired, bring materials for sketching or writing. We recommend walking without electronic devices. Snacks generously provided by New Pioneer Food Co-op.

Fee for individual classes: $20
Fee for all classes: $115
