Forest Bathing with Julie
May 19 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
This is NOT a naked bath experience. 😂 We will be fully clothed.
Forest Bathing is inspired by the Japanese practice of ‘shinrin yoku’. Shinrin means forest and yoku means bath. It’s a process where we experience the forest (nature) through our sense. It’s also scientifically been proven that the trees release a chemical called phytoncide. It’s used to protect them from harmful bugs and germs, and helps us do the same in our bodies.
Relax. Let. Go. Release. Give Nature…and Receive.
Time in Nature is essential to ground and embody the goodness Life has to offer. It is uplifts the mood, boosts the immune system, and relieves stress.
🌳We’ll sit with nature and listen.
🌳We’ll meditation, journal and give into Nature’s invitation.
🌳 We’ll Forest Bath. Exchange breaths with the trees, and receive their healing. (Watch the video if you have never been forest bathing)
Are you wondering about something in your Life? Or looking for answers, but haven’t had the time to sit still and let the answers come?
Do you just want to feel good?
Does hanging out with trees, the wind and sun sound like an amazing time to you?
Interested in boosting your immune system, reducing stress, taking a deep breath, and an overall sense of well-being?
If you answered Yes to any of these questions, this is the event for you. Join us as Julie guides you to listen and spend intentional time with the plants, the wind, the rocks, the water, the birds and the general landscape of Mead Botanical Garden.
You’ll be guided through this experience by Julie, plant-based nutritionist, herbalist and shamanic practitioner. She recently moved from California where she regularly spent time in the forest and the plants.
We’ll also have tea together and an invitation to share.
PLEASE BRING THE FOLLOWING:
1. A journal
2. A blanket or yoga mat, something to sit on
3. Bug repellent, just in case
