Experience the beauty of Spring on an inspiring and rejuvenating Forest Bathing walk at Sky Meadows State Park in Delaplane, VA on April 25 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.
Join Kim Strader, Certified Forest Bathing Guide, to explore the sights, sounds and smells of nature at this time of year in an area that offers spectacular views of meadows, trees and mountains. Through a series of invitations and prompts, you will make new discoveries as we reconnect or deepen our connection with the natural world in a way that supports overall health and wellness.
Forest Bathing/Forest Therapy walks are inspired by Shinrin-Yoku, a term coined in Japan in the 1980s, where it is a prominent feature of preventative medicine and healing. Medical and scientific research finds that connecting with nature in this way helps:
Reduce blood pressure
Lower cortisol levels
Boost the immune system
Improve sleep and mood
Increase energy and creativity
No prior outdoor experience or naturalist training required. Walk is limited to 9 adults.
Our walk will cover 1 to 3 miles. Boots or shoes with good tread are highly recommended.
