We will meet at a beautiful natural area in or around Burlington for a 2 hour Forest Bathing Walk. “Forest Bathing” and “taking in the atmosphere of the forest” are both direct translations of Shinrin-Yoku. Shinrin-Yoku is the scientifically backed Japanese tradition of nature immersion for wellness that began in 1982 and is just now catching on in the United States. Your ANFT Certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide, Duncan will then offer a series of “invitations” to help you explore nature through your senses in new and deeply familiar ways. The walk will consist of time for solitude in nature and moments talk with the group about your experience in the “way of council”: a practice in authenticity, compassion and deep listening. The experience will be completed with a wildcrafted tea ceremony in the forest served in traditional hand crafted Japanese tea cups.
I offer a wildcrafted tea ceremony in the forest served in traditional hand crafted Japanese tea-cups. Ex: Sumac tea.
We will be Forest Bathing in a special forested area right here in Burlington. Rockpoint, Arms Forest, the Intervale or Derway Island.
最多可有10位年满12周岁的参与者参加。 We will be walking less than one mile on easy, flat terrain. Wear comfortable cloths and footwear.
This is a wonderful way to experience the natural beauty in Vermont with friends and family. This practice is rewarding, fun, calming, softly fascinating and enlightening.
