Shinrin-yoku: the Medicine of Forest Bathing (Woodstock)

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.
