Forest Bathing with Nature Art for Teens-Adults

Forest Bathing with Nature Art for Teens-Adults

Workshop for grades 8th through Adult

Inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku, “Forest Bathing” has been scientifically proven to boost immune strength, reduce stress, and improve cognitive functioning as we deepen our connection with the natural world by slowing down and engaging our senses. Certified ANFT guide, Emily vonSwearingen, will offer a series of guided “invitations” that tune participants into the environment with mediative Native flute and tongue drum accompaniments. Learn about the Japanese Kodama Tree Spirits, create a cyanotype with natural found textures and practice reciprocity by creating temporary art as a gift back to nature. The end of each walk features brewing tea with harvested plants. This session takes place entirely outdoors.
