Forest Bathing Walks @ Bartlett Arboretum
On September 1 and 12 the Bartlett Arboretum in Stamford is hosting two forest bathing walks from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, which translates to forest bathing, these walks have been scientifically proven to boost immune strength, reduce stress, and improve cognitive function. Beyond the physiological changes, forest bathing offers us the opportunity to deepen our relationship with the natural world.
This exercise will be led by Sue Smith, the founder of Roots in Nature
. Her guided walks as a Certified Guide with the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy (ANFT) are designed to help participants unplug, slow down, and experience nature in a whole new way. Sue is also a certified health counselor and works with individuals, groups, and organizations to promote the benefits of mindfully exploring the land around us.
Each forest bathing experience is $30 for Bartlett members and $40 for non-members. Please click on the buttons below to sign up! To book click here.
