Guided Forest Bathing with Cascadia Forest Therapy | Upcoming Saturdays | 10am-12pm

Join Kruckeberg Botanic Garden in partnership with Cascadia Forest Therapy for a one-of-a-kind nature experience. This guided mindfulness activity works well for individuals, friends, and families. Class sizes are limited so grab a ticket while you can!

Dates and Guides: All sessions are on Saturdays, 10am-12pm.

  • November 25th
  • December 9th
  • December 30th

Description: A guided forest bathing walk typically lasts for one to two hours, providing a gentle and physically undemanding experience in a natural setting. Unlike a hike, there is no specific destination or distance to be measured. Instead, your guide leads participants through a series of sensory invitations that allow people to have fun engaging with their environment and find moments of reflection and inspiration.

Complimentary hot tea will be provided and participants will take home a collection of forest bathing invitations that they can share with others as well as information about local forest bathing opportunities.

Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. A growing number of scientific studies show that forest bathing practices lower stress and blood pressure levels and increase immune system functioning.

Registration cost:

  • Members – $25
  • Nonmembers – $40

Accessibility: These sessions are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. However, the path to the lower garden is moderately steep and garden trails may be uneven.
