Forest Bathing Walk (Shinrin-Yoku)

As the leaves begin to change colors and temperatures cool down, why not try something new? Shinrin-Yoku, forest bathing, is the experience of immersing oneself in the sensory gifts of nature. This can be done in a forest setting, gardens and parks. The benefits are not only a greater sense of well-being, but a boost in immune function and ready access to lower stress hormones and boosts in serotonin levels. This is not your regular walk in the park. Instead, it is a series of invitations using the senses to rediscover your inner child and your connection with the natural world. Being relaxed, revitalized, and better equipped to handle the stresses of daily living are the goals of this forest bathing walk. Instructor Christy Thomson is a life-long resident of northeast IN. She is the only certified forest therapy guide in Indiana and is thrilled to share this opportunity with the Fort Wayne community. Note: Additional participants may drop in, up to the class maximum, but call ahead to make sure class will be in session. Registration deadlines: September 21 and November 2, respectively. Ages 18+. Min 10. Max 15.
