Forest Bathing Spa Meditation Retreat
September 27, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Shinrin-yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing.” It was developed in Japan during the 1980’s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. A robust body of scientific literature now exists on the health benefits of spending time under the canopy of a living forest. Inspired by the Japanese practice and the emerging worldwide trend toward nature-based wellness practices, Osmosis is offering a one-day spa retreat featuring Forest Bathing. Learn more about it HERE.
What to expect:
Leisurely walks on gentle paths under the forest canopy with guided activities and meditations to help you open your senses, hone your intuition, and experience the forest as you never have before.
All day spa retreat includes a morning of forest bathing, an organic box lunch, cedar enzyme foot-bath, hammock sound therapy session and a revitalizing 75-minute massage or facial.
Michael Stusser brings 40 years of meditation practice and a lifetime of wilderness experience to his forest bathing guiding. He is becoming a certified forest-bathing guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFT). He is leading a delegation to connect with the origins of the movement in Japan this fall with the organization’s founder Amos Clifford.
