Experience shinrin-yoku, or "forest bathing," as it is known in Japan - the practice of intentionally and mindfully spending time in the forest, using all our senses to experience nature up close. It creates a bridge between us and the natural world. Numerous scientific studies show that forest bathing significantly reduces stress and improves cardiovascular and metabolic health, among other health benefits. Most importantly, it gives us a profound sense of the beauty and mystery of the universe.

Mary Pat Peters, CUCC friend and Spiritual Landscape Designer, will guide us. Bathrooms  are nearby. Contact Śānti at 919-961-8814 or with questions.

WEATHER UPDATE:  Mary Pat will contact people by email and cell if there are necessary
