Experience the healing and wellness-promoting effects of shinrin-yoku, the practice of bathing the senses in the atmosphere of the forest. In this forest therapy walk for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies, join other nature lovers for a mindful walk with a certified Forest Therapy guide on the Arboretum’s grounds.
On this three-hour walk, you will experience a series of guided invitations to slow down, open the senses, and cultivate an embodied relationship between yourself and the natural world. We’ll conclude with a tea ceremony, with tea made from edible plants foraged along the trail. There’s no right or wrong way to come home to ourselves. Come as you are; it’s all welcome in the forest.
COVID-19 Precautions: Program participants must abide by the Arboretum’s safety guidelines.
