Experience Shinrin Yoku—forest bathing—a restorative practice originating in Japan that emphasizes soaking in the sounds, scents and sights of nature for slowing the body, stilling the mind and opening the heart. In either an afternoon or an evening session, participants will walk the Arboretum grounds in a slow, relaxed and mindful way, ending with sharing an informal tea ceremony made with gathered wild plants. Students should wear comfortable clothing and shoes for walking outside as weather permits.
