Intro to Forest Bathing

March 2 @ 9:00 am - March 11 @ 12:00 pm

$55

The healing Japanese practice of forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, involves deeply attuning your senses to your surroundings on a forest walk so as to experience a health-restoring sense of well-being. A way to calm mind and spirit, it offers a range of research-proven benefits; among them are reduced stress, lower blood pressure, increased physical energy, and improved concentration.
In a similar vein, Dr. Lee Ann Woolery, ecologist, artist, and resident of the Sonoran Desert, has developed the practice of mindfulness drawing in nature. In two experiential workshops at Yume, she will present forest bathing and her technique of mindfulness drawing and show how to combine them to tap into the energy or “spirit” of a natural setting and to experience “flow,” a state of energized focus bestowing a sense of being at one with your environment.
