The concept of forest bathing grew out of a practice in Japan called Shinrin-yoku that spread to China and Korea and now to the United States. It is about swimming in the living being of the forest: drinking in the smells, feeling the breeze on your skin, hearing it move through the trees, soaking up the warm healing rays of the sun, touching the earth with awareness. Because this practice is about slowing down, focusing on the abundant life in and around you, it is immensely healing. You return from this experience feeling refreshed, calmer, more at peace on the inside. Your body, mind, spirit and heart have an opportunity to feel a deep sense of connection with yourself and with all of life.
Due to the problem of social distancing on a Forest Bathing Walk I am offering several videos of virtual guided walks with the following organizations:

Cape Cod gives you a very special opportunity to deepen your relationship with Nature because of the unique environment provided by marsh, creek, ponds, forest, dunes and beach. Come on a guided walk where you will be shown how to pay attention in a new way that will create a sense of greater health, well-being and appreciation by opening up from the heart to the beauty in you and around you.
Come open your heart to the beauty of Cape Cod.
