Forest Bathing aka Mindful Outdoor Experience
Join Kripalu Mindful Outdoor Guide Alice Bean Andrenyak in a 1.5 hour Forest Bathing experience. Discover the wonders of the outdoor world and calm and reset yourself before the continuing your day. This is a weekly event.
What is the purpose of a Mindful Outdoor Experience or Forest Bathing? Connect with the Outdoors (in the More than Human world), connect with ourselves, connect with each other – face to face. While disconnecting from the digital world, allow the past to be “passed”. Allow the future to unfold. Be present, right Now , in this moment, In the outdoors… To gather, honor traditions, find meaning, connect, witness, enjoy community, share, create memories, become a better version of ourselves.
Treat yourself to time in the outdoors where you discover the glorious newness of the green of spring, hidden leaves, bird and animal calls, and tracks made by non-humans. Slow yourself down and decrease your stress levels, get some Vitamin D on your face, help your body begin to heal itself through the smells, the breeze, the vistas, the tastes and touch. Make new friends and enhance current friendships during this 1.5 hour experience. We will warm-up, focus on our breathing and its sensations, walk a short distance, discover something new to watch, sit quietly for a while, and meet back with each other for a sharing ceremony before closing. Someetimes we have a tea ceremony.
