Shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed in Japan during the 1980s 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 this one-day retreat in partnership…
The program includes sitting and walking meditation, a dharma talk, a cedar enzyme foot-bath, a customized 75-minute massage, lunch, time for quiet reflection and conversation around how to continue practice in our daily lives.
Join us on the Autumn Equinox at 8am in the Temple Gardens at Osmosis as we celebrate this mysterious time. Come and be with the spirit of the land here on Salmon Creek at this very special time of balance and equanimity.
