Awaken your senses and reconnect with nature during these mindful walks with a certified forest therapy guide. No two walks are the same; visit different locations at The Morton Arboretum and enjoy a variety of awareness-raising exercises.
“‘Forest bathing’ suggests to me a more casual experience among the trees, unburdened by expectations, oriented to simple pleasures.” Amos Clifford, Your Guide to Forest Bathing
On this two-hour winter walk, you will experience a series of guided, gentle invitations to open the senses, cultivate presence, and invite healing interactions between people and the natural world. Afterward, warm up by the fire with a closing ceremony.
This program meets in person at The Morton Arboretum.
