Shinrin-Yoku Guided Walks

Forest bathing with Instructor Irene Bailey – an upcoming featured event
Forest Bathing is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku and has been scientifically proven to boost immune strength, reduce stress, and improve cognitive functioning. It offers more than physiological shifts; it shares a space to connect deeply with the natural world and remember our interconnectedness with all life.

By slowing down and being present, we offer our bodies, minds, and hearts a nourishing break from the daily stress and challenges we are currently facing. Forest Bathing is a practice that calms the nervous system and reminds us to be present to the gift of life.

Lead by certified instructor Irene Bailey (pronouns: she/ her) is the Program Director for Temenos Rising and a certified guide with The Association for Nature and Forest Therapy. The walks take place when the garden is closed to the public, allowing for a peaceful and safe experience.

Reserve your tickets here – for upcoming Shinrin-Yoku walks at the garden on October 18 and October 25, from 10:00-12:30.

“This area is toast!” A restoration expert’s reaction to Leach Garden’s eastern five acres sounds daunting but knowing that the magical beauty of Garden grew from the remains of a pig farm provides great hope and momentum.
