ADIRONDACK WINTER FOREST BATHING Slow down. Unplug. Let the forest do the rest...
Picture it now: You are in the forest on a crisp winter day, the snow is falling lightly and all you can hear are the soft sounds of your snowshoes as you meander through the woods, invited by your guide to experience nature through your senses, to feel the magic of winter.
You already enjoy being in nature. Strap on a pair of snowshoes and let us take you on a unique Winter Forest Bathing sensory immersion. We will cover less than a mile on gentle terrain to allow you to take in all the sights, sounds, smells and textures of an Adirondack forest in winter. Your guide will help you slow down through a series of brief ever-changing sensory activities so you can find a deeper relationship with nature, feeling the interdependence of all living beings. And you will find that you are also more present to yourself and to each moment, effortlessly.
More than two decades of research studies describe a wide range of health benefits from the practice of Forest Bathing including lowered blood pressure, reduced stress, a stronger immune system, reduced anxiety and greater attention and concentration.
"The experience gave me a space to let go, let go of everything except my senses and awareness of my surroundings, to purposefully breathe and be in the forest, a place I visit often but am never really there!" Steph
