Forest Therapy walk


Sugarloaf State Park

Saturday June 2017 - 9:30am to

Forest Therapy, also known as Shinrin-Yoku, refers to the practice of spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness. The practice follows the general principle that it is beneficial to spend time bathing in the atmosphere of the forest. The Japanese words translate into English as “forest bathing.” In the context of this walk, Forest Therapy means spending time in nature in a way that invites healing interactions. There is a long tradition of this in cultures throughout the world. It’s not just about healing people; it includes healing for the forest (or river, or desert, or whatever environment you are in). These walks take place on the last Saturday of every month through November and run 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
