Backyard Forest Bathing: Reconnecting with Nature (Virtual Tour — Smithsonian Associates)

October 27, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am EDT

$50 – $60

Here’s the perfect escape: Join Melanie Choukas-Bradley, author of The Joy of Forest Bathing and Resilience: Connecting with Nature in a Time of Crisis, for an intimate virtual forest-bathing walk. Plug your headphones or earbuds into your smartphone, get comfortable in your backyard or a favorite natural area, and immerse yourself in nature through a rejuvenating morning program.
In this unique interactive audio experience, explore your surroundings through all your senses and connect deeply with the beauty and wonder of nature as Choukas-Bradley leads a small group in a series of “invitations” designed to help you become fully present and engaged with the living things around you.
Your registration will include:
  • A pre-recorded video presentation from Melanie Choukas-Bradley to introduce the concept of forest bathing.
  • The option to purchase a signed copy of both of Melanie’s books with a discount from our local bookseller.
This is an audio-only Zoom program; the session is limited to 15 participants and is 1.5 hours in length.
