Forest Bathing Offerings

Forest Bathing Offerings in Three Community Parks

“We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.”

– Andy Goldsworthy, British Environmental Artist and Photographer


As guides, we offer an array of short experiential practices that invite each of us to tap into our senses – scent, sight, sound, touch and taste  – to explore our individual connection to the animals, plants, soil . . . of the forests. Drawing from an array of Forest Bathing practices, we’ll listen to what’s emerging to guide us. We introduce invitations from what we’ve received on workshops, retreats and through books (*see below) for a group experience.  We hope you’ll leave with confidence for furthering your connection to nature.

Previous experience in nature is not required, only an open-hearted curiosity. Forest Bathing offerings are for all fitness levels and abilities. We’ll gather for two hours and will generally be walking short distances, though accommodations will gladly be made. Please join us.

Registration is required. Sign up for one or more sessions at the links provided. Forest Bathing is offered on a donations basis. Contributions go to support area parks. Upon registration, further details and meeting locations will be sent to you.

*Optional reading list: Your Guide to Forest Bathing (M. Amos Clifford), Forest Bathing (Dr. Qing Li), and supplemental books like Morning Altars (Day Schildkret) and Earthwalks (James Endredy).
