Experience the crisp air and colors of autumn with Forest Bathing. Slowly walk on a carpet of vibrant leaves, pausing to take notice of the intricacies around you. Listen to the whispering wind, feel the soft moss and give yourself time to unplug and slow down. Follow your certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide through a series of sensory connection invitations to support you and enhance your connection with the green world. A hot, locally foraged tea will be served to complete your experience.
