Forest Bathing, The Art of Noticing.

July 28th

Cost: $25.00 / person

Instructor: Cindy Conlon, J.D., Ph.D.

We live in the Northwoods but few of us take time to immerse ourselves in the forest environment. “Forest bathing” is a way of spending time in nature that was first established in Japan as a way to nurture the well-being of its citizens; the practice involves a series of invitations to use all of the senses to be fully present in the forest. Doing so, research shows, boosts the immune system, lowers blood pressure and stress hormones, and elevates both cognitive function and mood.

This class is not a vigorous hike, nor is it a talk by a naturalist. Rather, it is an opportunity to allow the forest to be the teacher, to feel the interconnectedness of the natural world and to connect with your own inner peace and wisdom.

Open to anyone age 16 and over. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water, hat, and bug repellant. We will be walking only about a mile but you should have the physical ability to move from standing to sitting on the ground and back up to standing.

Meet at the Warehouse at 9:15 am to carpool/caravan  to Section 9 road entrance of Tara Lila Woodland Conservancy.


Cindy is certified to teach yoga, breathwork, and is a guide-in-training for the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT). Learn more about the
