    Practice mindfulness and disconnect from the stress of city life with a unique forest therapy session in Central Park. This supportive, open-to-all experience features a guided walk, meditation, tea ceremony, and healing group conversation. Attendees will be able to connect with nature and meet new people who are looking to do the same—all while discovering scenes of overlooked beauty in the heart of Manhattan.

    Rain or shine.

    Cost is $35.  This is part of Meetup.com’s new Experiences service.

    I estimate the event will take 3 hours. Time tends to pass quickly.

    Meeting just inside the W 103rd street entrance of Central Park. Right across the street from B/C train stop.

    ** Weekend subways are weird and there has been some construction at some stops so you may need to take a train to W110 and walk down.

    This walk will be on monastery grounds. This is not a Buddhist event, nor do we have any affiliation with the monastery, HOWEVER, please respect their preference for modest clothing (no shorts, tank tops, or overly revealing outfits) and if you pack food, keep it vegetarian.

    Cost: $25 (sliding scale for those in need)

    After the walk, the dining hall serves a $6 vegetarian lunch noon-1pm and visitors are welcome to explore the grounds as well as the Great Buddha Hall which is certainly a sight to see! I plan to mediate there after lunch so if you are interested in a meditation primer just ask!

    All participants must sign a simple liability waiver at the start of the event to allow us peace of mind in offering our walks to the public.

    Part mindfulness walk and part forest therapy, this is an abbreviated version of my Forest Therapy program designed to recharge after a long day at the office.

    Rain or shine.

    Cost is $20. If you are not able to afford the fee please reach out to me for sliding scale options. The fee helps support this service and allows me to be flexible with those who need the help. (If you need to pay cash please contact me privately.)

    If you attended one of my events in the past month please take 50% off – contact me privately to RSVP.

    This is a short event – 1 to 1.5 hours. Time tends to pass quickly and I want to be mindful of your time.

    (If you wear high heels, bring flats.)

    We’ll meet just inside the W 103rd street entrance of Central Park. Right across the street from B/C train stop. There are bathrooms close by.

    Workshop/Outdoor Therapy w/ John Polemis founder of Hudson Valley Forest Therapy hosted by Mirabai Books, Woodstock, NY.

    Learn about the Japanese healing practice of forest bathing (shinrin-yoku) from an experienced forest therapy guide, John Polemis, founder of Hudson Valley Forest Therapy. We’ll start indoors at Mirabai with an introduction to the practice and how to get the most from it, as well as taking some time for questions. Then we will move to the nearby Comeau Property for a full forest therapy session outdoors (around 2 hours). We’ll end with an informal tea ceremony and light snacks. Feel free to pack a lunch for afterward! A few mats/chairs will be available but consider bringing something to sit on outdoors. Total time of the event is expected to be around 3 hours and attendees are welcome to linger to enjoy the property and/or mingle afterward.

    Cost: $25 if registered and prepaid by Jun 28th; $30 if registering after the 28th.
