440 Montauk Hwy
Great River, NY 11739, USA

Join certified forest therapy guide, Linda Lombardo of Wild Heart Nature Connection, on a walk at Bayard Cutting Arboretum to reconnect with the natural world around us. We’ll slow down, wander and notice what most of the world simply walks past; the beauty of nature getting ready for Autumn. We’ll do some grounding, connect with the trees and water, and even create some nature art together. These walks are always slow and easy-going, not a hike; not a tour of plants or collections. Walk length: 120 minutes; please wear comfortable, sturdy shoes for walking outdoors. Bring whatever else you require to feel comfortable. Masks are required. Organic bug spray only, please. We also practice physical distancing. Limited to 12 participants. Ages 16 and up. Fee: $40 per person. If you have an Empire Pass, parking is free. Otherwise, it's $8 per car.

Pink Beds Trail Loop U.S. 276
Pisgah Forest, NC, USA

The practice of forest bathing encourages you to slow down, relax and reconnect with nature by quieting the mind and awakening the senses. We're looking forward to supporting your recharge in the stunning environment of Pisgah National Forest just one hour outside of Asheville and near Brevard, NC. Join Christa Hebal, an ANFT certified forest therapy guide, for a relaxing 2.5-hour stroll in our stunning Blue Ridge Mountains. Through a series of invitations, you’ll have the opportunity to be present in the moment, deepening your connection with nature and community, and enjoying the many gifts nature has to offer. Inspired by Shinrin-Yoku, the Japanese art of immersing oneself in a forest environment, forest bathing walks invite our guests to spend time in nature in a way that invites healing for ourselves, our fraught ecosystems, and our community. It is true nature therapy! The walk culminates in a tea ceremony with snacks. Prefer a private experience? Private walks are available daily, year-round. Please contact us with inquiries or questions!

Pittsburgh Botanic Garden

Pittsburgh Botanic Garden

Oct 03, 2021 | 09:15 A.M. - 11:45 A.M.

799 Pinkerton Run Road
Oakdale, PA, USA

Join us for this immersive forest experience where you consciously take in the sights, sounds, touches, smells and tastes 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. Our walk will last from two to two and a half hours. With Certified Forest Therapy Guide Doug Jones’ guidance, we’ll wander along the paths of the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden, 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. The terrain is rolling. The trails are wide and well maintained. They may be muddy in spots, and we will go down steps in a couple of places. If you have mobility issues, please contact Doug in advance.

Sink into the softness of the forest floor, sit awhile, and breathe with the trees. Join me on a guided forest bathing walk in the beautiful meadow and 20 acre woodland at Fare Thee Well in Huntington MA, located on Pond Brook Rd (Route 66), just outside of Westhampton. This is a guided 2 -2.5 hour forest and nature connection experience on an easy to moderate trail. We will move slowly, guided by a series of invitations, enjoying the simple pleasures of the moment. And immerse our senses in the many the living forest surrounds and touches us. The destination is "here", rather than "there", focusing on connection with the natural world, and ourselves. Public Group 2 -2.5 hour walks are offered on a “Pay from the Heart” donation basis, with the intention to increase accessibility to the transformational and healing practice of Nature and Forest Connection experiences. Simply pay the amount your heart guides you to, based on your financial circumstances. Participants who are able to contribute the Pay It Forward rate directly supports those who cannot afford that amount. We periodically donate a percentage of our net profit to the Western MA Food Bank, or land trust and conservation organizations. Thus, your generosity helps to provide food and necessities to our neighbors in need, and helps steward the beautiful protected lands we are privileged to use. Community Supported $20.00 Standard : $40.00 Pay it forward: $60.00

We invite you to immerse yourself in the forest and experience your deep connection with the natural world, as you join the forest bathing walk on the pristine Transfiguration Preserve in the Hickory Nut Gorge of western North Carolina. The walks are led by Dr. Mattie Decker, an ANFT certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide. Mattie is also a mindfulness teacher, a Zen practictioner, an Episcopal oblate, and a retired professor of education. She is certified in wilderness medicine and first aid. Mattie likes to share this saying from her forest bathing mentors: “The forest is the therapist. The guide opens the door.” Many forest bathing walks will take place on our beautiful Transfiguration Preserve in Bat Cave, NC. Additional walks may be planned for other places of wonder that Conserving Carolina has helped protect. In addition to forest bathing walks, we look forward to offering special events that incorporate music, art, photography, writing, or foraging for edible plants into the forest bathing experience.
