This 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. 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 Nature.
These walks are led by Carol Marcy, who has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and certification as a Meditation teacher. She has been leading meditative walks on Cape Cod for several years. Please join us for a wonderful heart opening experience. The group size is small so that we can keep a safe distance. Be sure to wear a mask. The walk is approximately 1 mile long on easy and beautiful terrain. Please dress comfortably for hiking. Be sure that you are warm enough because we go slowly.
