Please watch for our eNews announcing future events.

About this walk:
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.  The Native American people call this being indigenous to a sense of place.  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 refreshed, calmer, more at peace on the inside.  Your body, mind, spirit, and heart have had an opportunity to feel a deep sense of connection with yourself and with all of life.                   

Cape Cod’s natural environment gives you a very special opportunity to deepen your relationship with Nature because of the unique confluence of its dynamic marshes, creeks, and forests.  Join Field Guide Carol Marcy 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 of the beauty in you and around you.
