Shinrin-yoku: Forest Bathing

A group of people sit in the grass beneath a tree in the morning light.
  • This event has passed.

Shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, is rooted in the traditional Japanese reverence for the natural world and dedicated to promoting health, happiness, and a sense of awe. Anisa George, a certified forest therapy guide, facilitates a series of interactions with nature that cultivate presence, calm, and profound joy. Discover how to unlock the door to new connections and intimacy with the environment through this guided meditation. Dress for the weather and bring a water bottle and a snack, a light backpack to carry your belongings, and something comfortable to sit on in case of wet ground.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Sunday, October 24 (Rain Date: Sunday, October 31)

About the Instructor: Anisa George is a permaculture designer and certified guide through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides. Her approach to forest therapy grows organically out of her experience with collaborative theater: marrying playful elements of ensemble-created performance with the mindful presence and gentle pace of the forest therapy tradition.
