Enjoy the community and camaraderie created while learning the practice of forest-bathing, and feel the joy and awe of the natural world and fall colors emerging during this 4-week series. Each class will consist of a series of gentle activities (invitations) that allow participants to use their 5-senses to engage with nature. This is wellness naturally–more than a walk in the woods. It has the health benefits of mindfulness and supports the immune system and variable heart rate. This is not a physically-demanding class. Class activities are low-impact and slow-paced and cover short distances.
