Rest and rejuvenate through mindful and sensory awareness at Riverwood and deepen your relationship with nature. Forest bathing is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku, which gives you the chance to unplug, unwind, and reconnect with yourself and nature. Experience the benefits of slow-paced wandering in nature with a trained forest therapy guide on this guided retreat.
Participants will unplug, unwind, and open their senses to the natural environment. A series of invitations will be offered to guide you to interact with the land and beings at Riverwood. There is no right or wrong way to engage these invitations, just come be yourself.
Tea service will be offered at the end of the program, please bring a reusable mug, or your own hot drink.
No dogs permitted. Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and dress for the weather. This is a rain or shine event unless severe weather is forecast. We will provide you a square mat to sit on, or please bring a blanket of your own. If you are unable to sit on the forest floor, we can provide a chair (please notify us prior to the program date). It is highly recommended to bring a backpack for your possessions to keep your hands free.
Cancellations and Refunds
