Join Melanie Choukas-Bradley, author of The Joy of Forest Bathing and Resilience—Connecting With Nature in a Time of Crisis, for a forest bathing presentation and experience that you can enjoy in your own backyard or even your living room. Based on her research for these two books, her forest bathing trip to Japan, and her experience as a certified forest bathing guide, she will give you a comprehensive presentation accompanied by beautiful slides on the practice of shinrin-yoku or forest bathing and give you guidance to lead your own solo or small group forest bathing walks during our current crisis and beyond.

Shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, began in the 1980s in Japan and it is rooted in the traditional Japanese reverence for nature. Forest bathing is a mindfulness practice akin to meditation, yoga and tai chi that involves tuning in to the beauty and wonder of your natural surroundings with all of your senses. Melanie is a nature and forest therapy guide with certification from the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides & Programs and she has participated in guided shinrin-yoku walks throughout Japan. 

Melanie will be joined by Ana Ka’ahanui, co-founder of Capital Nature, and fellow forest bathing guide. 

One Saturday: October 3, from noon to 2 p.m. Online Class.
