Forest Bathing Walk: Slow Down, Unplug and Immerse Your Senses in Nature ←
Notice what’s moving around you. Gently cup your ears forward with your hands, like little deer ears, to amplify the forest sounds. A woodpecker? The breeze rustling in the leaves? Listen to the silence between the sounds. Inhale the aromas of the forest. Balsam? Pine? Feel the mystery of the forest.
Forest Bathing, translated from the Japanese Shinrin-Yoku, means immersing your senses in nature. Let us guide you on a unique two and a half hour forest walk on snowshoes and help your heighten your senses to all the sights, sounds, smells and textures of an Adirondack forest in winter.
Certified Forest Therapy Guide Suzanne Weirich will lead you on this relaxing journey. More than two decades of research studies have shown that Forest Bathing can lower blood pressure and stress hormones, as well as improve our immune system’s ability to fight infection and cancer.
