Shinrin-yoku: The Art of Forest Bathing - PBG0022

Note: The Cultivate Guide originally listed the date for this program as Saturday, June 22. It has been moved to Sunday, June 23.

Instructor: Ana Ka’ahanui, certified Forest Therapy Guide

Connect with nature through a forest bathing walk among the vivid colors and rich fragrances of summer blooms. Stroll the grounds and neighboring forest at a measured pace that allows you to notice the small miracles of nature unfolding. We’ll close the walk by enjoying hot tea and healthy snacks.

About Forest Bathing:
The Forest Agency of Japan began promoting forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, in the 1980s as a response to the stresses of urban living and long work hours. This nature-oriented mindfulness practice, which is rooted in the traditional Japanese reverence for the natural world, has since become popular all over the world, bringing joy and improved mental and physical health to millions of people. Numerous health studies have confirmed forest bathing’s benefits and doctors and nurses in our region are taking note. Many are prescribing “Nature” to their patients.

Strolls for Well-Being at Brookside Gardens - PBG0033

Connect with and care for your inner self through the Strolls for Well-Being, an evidence based program that promotes emotional healing and wellness through connection to nature. Over the course of eight weeks, you will complete twelve walks individually in Brookside Gardens, on your own schedule and with a beautiful full-color, 110-page journal as your guide. Each walk has its own theme, reflected in the journal with readings and writing prompts encouraging you to slow down, be present, and look inward. Those struggling with difficulty, stress, or transition may particularly benefit. Dates listed are for group meetings at the beginning, middle, and end of the program, where you will receive important information/materials and share insights with other participants (before registering, please be sure that you can commit to attending all three sessions).

Further information available at www.brooksidegardens.org/wellness. Note: Strolls for Well-Being and accompanying materials were created by mental health professionals but Brookside Gardens is not a mental health service provider.
