Women's Adventure Club - Western PA., Forest Therapy Walk at Walker Park, Shelter #2

Walker Park
Sewickley, PA, USA

Join us and experience nature’s power to soothe, refresh, and open your heart. The Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing in English) is a slow, sensory-based walk in the woods, during which we focus on the sights, sounds, smells, feels, and tastes of nature. This is neither a naturalist exploration nor a fitness trek; this walk is about soaking in the health benefits of relaxed time in nature. It’s also about tending to and mending our relationships with nature, ourselves, and others. There are no requirements – just come as you are. We will walk less than half a mile, and the experience will last two and a half hours. With Certified Forest Therapy Guide Doug Jones’ guidance, we’ll wander along the path and banks of Little Sewickley Creek, stopping every so often for invitations designed to maximize being present and deepen your connection with nature. Maybe the best thing about Forest Bathing is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. Just come as you are. No advance preparation is needed other than arriving ten minutes early for the walk and dressing appropriately for the weather. On our walk, we will be crossing the Creek on blocks designed for the crossing. Feel free to bring water shoes or waterproof boots if you would like to wade in the Creek. This is not a hilly trail, but may be muddy and uneven in spots. If you have mobility issues, please contact Doug in advance.

Olivette Riverside Community and Farm Olivette Road
Asheville, NC, USA

Sink deeply into the magic of twilight and experience the wonders of nighttime in the Blue Ridge Mountains as we celebrate our local wildflowers in alignment with the Full Flower Moon. Enjoy a peaceful evening retreat along the French Broad River with a certified nature and forest therapy guide, as the sun sets and the Flower Moon rises. In Japan, the birthplace of forest bathing (Shinrin Yoku), they celebrate the annual bloom of the cherry blossoms (Sakura) with a practice known as Hanami. It translates to "contemplate the flowers”, a time of deepening our attention, tuning into, and enjoying the ephemeral nature of flowers. Join us as we “flower bathe” in the golden light of the setting sun, noticing what may be blossoming around and within us. Experience the golden hour and the beauty of dusk and moonlight like never before during this guided nature immersion, exploring a series of invitations to quiet your mind and awaken your senses while deepening your connection with nature, community, and self. This gentle and restorative experience is suitable for most ages and activity levels and will not exceed one mile round trip. We'll end with a wild-foraged tea ceremony and snacks.

Full Moon Forest Bathing Riverside Immerse yourself in the magic of twilight and experience the wonders of nighttime in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy a peaceful evening retreat of intentional nature connection as the sun sets and the Full Buck/Thunder/Raspberry/Ripe Corn Moon rises along the French Broad River. As we slow down and harmonize with the cycles of nature, we may notice the month of July naturally inviting us to tune our awareness into what may be ripening, both within our inner landscapes and all around us. We'll end with a wild-foraged tea ceremony and snacks. This is a unique opportunity to unplug in the private, peaceful setting of Olivette Riverside Community in Asheville led by a certified nature and forest therapy guide. No bathing is required when forest bathing - we are immersing ourselves in the healing qualities of nature. Quiet your mind and awaken your senses as we sink into the heightened awareness of this special evening experience. Together, we’ll deepen our relationship with the Earth, community and Self. The best part: there’s no right or wrong way to forest bathe; just bring an open heart and be yourself.

Forest Bathing under a FULL MOON gives us an unparalleled opportunity to navigate with senses less dominant than our eyesight. We attune to and then let ourselves be guided by our more subtle senses: scent, sound, touch and intuition. We will move about this spectacular garden at night after it is closed to the general public. The time of the full moon offers us opportunity to see and to celebrate the myriad ways that the moon, the stars and the night sky can guide and influence us. The evening will incorporate an ever-varying combination of sound making and healing, forest bathing and nature immersion, reiki, and astrology.
