Join us as we explore the world through our senses & form a deeper connection with nature.

A combination of meditation and nature walk, we’ll be using our senses to be in and better connect with the natural world around us. Forest Bathing (“shinrin-yoku”) is a term for this activity that originated in Japan in the 1980s.
