799 Pinkerton Run Road
Oakdale, 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. PBG is a well-loved natural landscape of over 400 acres; 60 acres are groomed and tended as gardens, meadows, woodland, and grassy areas around a vibrant pond. The terrain is rolling, but there are no severely steep areas. We will walk on just a few trails, and our journey will be less than half a mile. We’ll walk rain or shine. Be sure to check the cancellation policy when you register.

Remotely-guided Nature Immersion - via Zoom

Remotely-guided Nature Immersion - via Zoom

Apr 19, 2024 | 12:00 P.M. - 01:00 P.M.

Bucks County, PA, USA

After a busy week, allow yourself to relax and recharge by immersing in the wonder of the natural world. Find yourself better prepared for the weekend ahead by forging a deeper connection with nature and your inner self, and rediscover the joy of simply ‘being’, instead of constantly ‘doing’. Join me for a remotely guided nature immersion where we'll journey together to experience a deep, sensory connection with the natural world around us. The nature immersion experience is inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku (“Forest Bathing”), a research-based practice known to boost immune strength, reduce stress, and improve cognitive function, all while helping us feel more connected – to each other, to the natural world around us, and to ourselves. The magic of this immersion, guided from afar, is that it takes place in your chosen natural space – a local park, a garden or greenhouse (especially nice as an escape from the cold winter weather), or the familiar comfort of your own yard. All you need is a view of the natural world and a device (with connection to the internet) to dial into the Zoom session. Many participants of remote immersions have commented that they appreciated being able to connect with nature in their own backyards – without the need for driving to a different location, and allowing them to have daily reconnection with these newfound friends of the natural realm. It's amazing how a familiar spot outdoors can suddenly feel like a new world, ready to be explored with fresh eyes. As your guide on this journey, I’ll offer a series of simple, yet profound ‘invitations’ to allow you to slow down, sink into the moment, and intentionally interact with the natural world around you. Then we’ll come back as a group to share our experiences. Sharing is totally optional, though. There are no expectations of specific outcomes, just a shared journey of discovery, before we are invited once again to each explore further, alone yet together, in our chosen corners of the world.

You’re familiar with the words “forest” and “bathing,” but how about when you combine them? Developed in Japan during the 1980s, Forest Bathing or Forest Therapy (in Japanese, its “shinrin-yoku”) is more than just meandering through the woods; it’s an immersive experience where you consciously take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the forest. It’s not about doing anything strenuous or getting your heart rate up — rather, the point is to slow down and fully experience in your own individual way what the forest has to offer. According to the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs, Forest Therapy offers scientifically documented health benefits, including reduced stress, improved mental clarity, and boosted immune function. Your walk will last from two to two and a half hours. With Doug’s guidance, you’ll wander along the trail, 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.
