A forest bathing experience helps you connect deeply with the natural world and remember how all humans, plants, and creatures are interconnected. It’s inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin Yoku.

The forest bathing walks at the Leach Botanical Garden in Portland, Oregon, are led by Irene Bailey, the program director for Temenos Rising. She’s a certified guide with the Association for Nature and Forest Therapy.

The next two walks at the garden are Sunday, March 21, and Sunday, April 4, from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Each walk is limited to 10 people and are held rain or shine. Masks and physical distancing are required.

Registration for each walk is $35 for garden members and $40 for non-members.
