Morning Forest Bathing
About This Event
Advance online registration is required for Forest Bathing. Sorry no drop-ins. We ask all unvaccinated individuals to please wear masks. If you are interested in requesting a specific guide, please contact the Education Department at email@example.com.
Inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku, Forest Bathing has been scientifically proven to boost immune strength, reduce stress, and improve cognitive functioning. But beyond these physiological changes, Forest Bathing also offers us the opportunity to deepen our relationship with the natural world. By slowing down and carefully observing with all our senses, we may begin to notice incredible things that may have eluded us for our whole lives. In escaping the rapid pace of our daily routines, we may find unparalleled beauty in the moment and in doing so, relax into the beauty all around us.
On your walk, a certified guide will offer a series of guided invitations to assist you in finding your own authentic way of interacting with the land at the Los Angeles Arboretum. There’s no right or wrong way to do it and it’s great for all ages; just come and be yourself. It’s all welcome in the forest.
