Green Immersion

That human beings benefit from exposure to the natural world is well documented, both empirically and experientially, yet our society does not formally acknowledge the importance of connecting with nature. The Japanese concept of shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, provides Westerners with a way to reawaken our connection with nature through guided sensory experience. In a similar green immersion at Garden in the Woods, Native Plant Trust writer-editor Jane Roy Brown will guide a contemplative 90-minute walk that includes pauses to write, sketch, and meditate.

This class will take place rain or shine. Please bring appropriate clothing and other items (bug repellent, sunscreen, hat) as needed.
