Forest Bathing Walk

Discover the regenerative power of mindful engagement with nature. The Japanese tradition of Shinrin-Yoku (forest bathing) is a practice of using all of your senses to connect with nature. Many studies have found it to be helpful in decreasing stress, increasing immune system functioning, and improving concentration, creativity and mood. In a slow-paced two-hour session, certified Forest Therapy Guide Stephanie Campbell will offer a sequence of gentle invitations designed to help you immerse yourself in deeper connection with nature, ending with a forest-based tea. Meet on the stone patio behind the Doris Duke Center.

This will be a small group program that takes place outdoors and traveling on a combination of paved and unpaved paths with some uneven surfaces and moderate inclines.

University parking fees apply ($2/hr.).
