Forest Bathing – Guided Walking Meditation

April 25 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Please join us for a guided walking meditation through the beautiful gardens and grounds of Loyola Jesuit Center, inspired by the Japanese practice called shinrin-yoku or its English translation, Forest Bathing. The two and a half-hour walk covers just a short distance and invites you to connect with nature on a deeper level using all five senses. No exceptional skill or physical exertion is required. Studies have demonstrated a wide array of physical, mental and spiritual health and wellness benefits from a slow walk in the forest or other natural environments. Forest Bathing walks remind us that we are a part of nature, not separate from it, and are related to all other beings in fundamental ways. Forest Bathing will help you unplug from technology, slow down and bring you into the present moment. About the Guide: Rich Collins is a Certified Guide for the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFT), based in Morristown & Barnegat Light, New Jersey. His company, Friendly Territory, specializes in Nature & Forest Therapy walks and retreats. He is a husband, proud father and grandfather, entrepreneur, and daily meditator.
