Lidingö, 181 41 Lidingö, Sweden

At the entrance of Långängen-Elfviks nature reserve on Lidingö island I will introduce you to the Japanese practice Shinrin-Yoku or Forest Bathing. We will then leave our civilised and busy life behind and slowly enter the forest to experience nature and the more than human world. Among green mosses, tall old spruces and blueberry bushes I will be lead you to awaken all your senses, the gateway on your journey to experience nature differently than in everyday life. I will offer a sequence of invitations, carefully crafted for each walk, for our minds being present, playful and creative. Maybe a mood closer to the heart of our ancient human spirit, living and surviving together within nature. We will walk slowly and quietly noticing and playing with the more than human world and occasionally gather to share our experiences. The walk will culminate in a tea-cermony in the forest with tea brewed from locally foraged plants. The walk is suitable for all ages and fitness.

We’re delighted that the author of the award-winning book, A Year in Rock Creek Park and the critically acclaimed, City of Trees, will offer her 14th year of nature walks for ANS in the country’s oldest urban national park. On our walk, we will witness the annual floral miracle of Virginia bluebells, spring beauties, and trout lilies in the floodplain forest, as we admire the leaves of tulip tree and American beech begin to spill from their buds. We’ll hope to catch bloodroot, wild ginger, cut-leafed toothwort and other spring ephemerals in bloom as we explore both floodplain and upland woods at a leisurely pace. Our lunch stop, high above the creek on a dramatic rock outcrop offering, will offer spectacular views. Here, we’ll do a bit of “forest bathing,” time permitting. Throughout, we’ll keep our eyes and ears open for belted kingfishers, wood ducks, migrating songbirds, and tiny spring peepers

260 Stuyvesant Avenue
Rye, NY, USA

We will gather inside to meet and introduce the program. We will then continue outside where we will perform some gentle stretches and centering exercises to open our awareness to the natural world. We will honor the history of the land we will be spending our time on before moving into a walking meditation of the grounds. After walking meditation, the invitation will be for each individual to have a sit spot practice in a location that calls to them. The sound of chimes will queue the end of individual meditation and bring us back together as a group for tea and council practice under the trees. We’ll gently close and enter back into our daily life with a clear mind and connected heart. Each participant will go home with some gifts to keep you connected to our experience. Fee: $40.50 for Wainwright House members, $45.00 for non-members
