Madison, WI

Experience forest bathing, also known as forest therapy or the Japanese term, Shinrin-yoku. This is not a hike, nor a naturalist walk filled with facts. This is a healing, therapeutic, meditative connection - a time where you will slow down by immersing yourself in the atmosphere of nature. Your senses will fully activate to drop you into a state of just being. Our senses, unlike our thoughts, are here and now. Your guide will prompt you with unique invitations designed to help you connect with nature in the moment and open more than five senses. Some will be playful, others imaginative, tactile, visual, sound-based - and more! A closing tea ceremony helps allow all to embody their experiences and openings from the day.
