Wonders at Woodend: Fall Forest-Bathing Walk (Woodend Sanctuary & Mansion)
October 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT$26 – $36
Savor the natural joys of autumn on a forest-bathing walk led by Melanie Choukas-Bradley, a longtime ANS field trip leader and the author of The Joy of Forest Bathing and two new books: Resilience: Connecting with Nature in a Time of Crisis and Finding Solace at Theodore Roosevelt Island. Discover the magic of shinrin-yoku, translated as “forest bathing,” a nature-oriented mindfulness practice that originated in Japan and has become popular all over the world. Our leader is a Nature & Forest Therapy Guide with certification from the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy Guides and Programs of Sonoma County, California. Experience the ongoing restoration of our Woodend Sanctuary as we explore and commune with the living things in its meadows, forest, and Blair Native Plant Garden. A sharing of nature poetry will conclude the walk.
