2 Taylor Rd
Acton, MA 01720, USA

Learn how to do Forest Bathing invitations with your dog. Your dog will even be your guide! Hate to leave your dog behind? Me too, so I've developed my own way of bringing these two things together combining my experience as a Certified Forest Therapy Guide and a dog owner. Spending time in nature with my dog and Shinrin Yoku are two of my favorite things to do. Using our senses to slow down and bring us to the present moment is the way of a Shinrin Yoku walk. So often our walks can be something we have to get done, rushed or full of conversation on our phones. Instead, learn how to make part of your walk a time to slow down, connect and release the stress in the Shinrin Yoku way. Even make it part of a mindfulness practice. Yes, even with your dog! Proof of rabies vaccination in the form of a town license tag or documentation from a veterinarian is required to participate. Limited to 8 owners and their dogs. Nadine is a Certified Forest Therapy Guide through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs. Her training includes special knowledge in guiding people of all ages in Shinrin Yoku, "Forest Bathing," Walks and the body of scientific knowledge demonstrating the benefits of spending time in nature as a wellness practice and an effective way to manage stress. As a cancer survivor, practicing good self-care is Nadine's most important guiding principle for herself. She has come to know the healing and support that nature can offer us through her own personal wellness journey. A Massachusetts native who loves spending time wandering and exploring in nature, she is joyous to be sharing Forest Bathing with the community and creating environments for Forest Therapy.

Smithsonian Associates - An Immersion in Nature: Japanese “Forest Bathing”—Urban Style

Smithsonian Associates - An Immersion in Nature: Japanese “Forest Bathing”—Urban Style

Oct 20, 2020 | 08:45 A.M. - 10:45 A.M.

S. Dillon Ripley Center 1100 Jefferson Dr SW
Washington, DC, USA

Shinrin-yoku (translated as “forest bathing”) began in Japan in the 1980s. Rooted in Shinto and Buddhist traditions of reverence for nature, the practice involves a full sensory immersion in the outdoors. Recent health studies conducted in Japan, North America, and other countries document the mental and physical health benefits of quiet time spent in nature, including lowered blood pressure and stress hormone levels, as well as improved mood and cognition. Lately, more and more studies are focused on the health benefits of time spent in natural landscapes within cities. Experience forest bathing as Melanie Choukas-Bradley, a certified nature and forest-therapy guide and author of The Joy of Forest Bathing (Rock Point), leads a 2-hour walk in the Enid A. Haupt Garden behind the Smithsonian Castle. Move slowly to soak up the beauty of the Moongate Garden, inspired by the Chinese Temple of Heaven; the Fountain Garden, modeled after the Court of the Lions at the Alhambra, and the Victorian Parterre. This unique and restorative celebration of the beauty of spring in one of the garden gems of the nation’s capital is the perfect way to learn why forest bathing is becoming popular all over the world. All participants receive a signed copy of The Joy of Forest Bathing.
