Guided Forest Bathing
Wednesday: November 15 | 2-4:30PM
Saturdays: December 9, January 13, February 24 | 2-4:30PM
Guided Forest Bathing is an opportunity to connect with Nature and experience CNC in a new way. During this gently 2 ½ hour ramble, we will balance wandering with rest, facilitated group gatherings, and solo time. Your guide will offer invitations, or suggestions, for safely engaging with Nature through our senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. With no expectations or goals, this is an opportunity to slow down, unplug, destress, and practice presence in the moment. We quite literally “come to our senses” and deepen our connection to Nature, ourselves, and each other. Inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, which translates to “forest bathing”, this is a sensory immersion, a chance to soak in the therapeutic benefits of being present in Nature (no water required!). Enjoy some warm tea provided as part of the experience.
Your guide, Kathryn Fidati is a Certified Forest Therapy Guide through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT). Limited spaces available.
Ages 16+; $45 general public / $35 CNC Members. Advanced Registration Required by the Thursday before each class.
