Details

Event Type Walk/Hike Description Join Cultured Forest for an hour of guided Fall Forest Bathing at Clermont State Historic Site. Forest Bathing is based on a Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku that involves connecting with nature by “Bathing in the Forest Atmosphere”. Studies show time in nature lowers blood pressure, boosts immunity and reduces stress. In this activity, you will indulge with fellow nature lovers in relaxing mindfulness and self-care in a guided outdoor class. Plan to see some of the most peaceful areas of the park, while learning activities that allow you to better connect with yourself and the outdoors. Leave feeling centered and more at peace. Learn how to bring Mindfulness in Nature into your personal Wellness routine. We are excited to end this session with a tea ceremony. This will require about a mile of hiking with some stairs and walking up and down steep inclines and over rocks. Please be sure to wear comfortable shoes with tread that can walk over rocks and grass. There will not be a bathroom break during the session, but restrooms are available at the park. Attendees must be 8 years or older. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Admission is $5. Meet in Main Parking Lot. Sponsoring Organization Friends of Clermont
