Forest Bathing, also called Forest Therapy, is a practice of deepening a sense of connection or relationship with nature through a 1.5- 2-hour walk. It is typically a slow wander through nature, but it can be adapted in many ways for different groups and abilities. A Forest Bathing walk is not a naturalist walk, a rigorous walk, or actual bathing (all clothes stay on;)). This Experience is led by a certified guide, who does not serve as a therapist- the forest is considered the therapist-but whose role is to open the possible connections by offering suggestions (which we call invitations) that help the participant develop a more sensory and embodied relationship with the surrounding nature and forest. In addition, this experience has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety and depression and help us slowdown from our hectic lives.
