FOREST BATHING* at Fort Worden State Park:
Sunday, April 14 and April 28: 12:00 to 2:00 PM
Saturday, April 20 and May 4: 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM
It's true, only 4 more forest bathing dates until we start up again in JUNE!
April 28th will be a special 'bath' for the senses: this day is the official National'Park Rx' day, and to celebrate, we will include a local poet on the 2 hour walk. We will share contemplative meandering around the Park, and allow time for brief meditation and poetry, encouraging your spirit to wake up to your own creative juices- that's why we love Spring!
* Forest Bathing ("Shinrin Yoku") is a delightful form of contemplative walking in a wooded area, gently connecting us to the natural world through actively engaging our senses. Sound, sight, smell, taste and touch can heighten our awareness of the intricacy of the life all around us. Intentionally paying attention-while walking slowly,and pausing often- can help us notice so much more than walking to 'get somewhere'.
Explore the paths of Fort Worden State Park with your guide, who will share a poem or two and a brief guided meditation along the way. Please do not bring pets or cell phones.
Meet up in front of Madrona Mindbody Institute.
