Experience Details

Start your day with a slow, curious, wander, experiencing nature through the senses.

This nature immersion is an opportunity to slow down and unplug, reset your mind, and explore a different way of being in nature. You will be guided by Skunk through a series of sensory oriented invitations to get out of your head and into the present moment, with opportunities to connect with fellow participants.

While there are many things that this nature immersion is not - a hike, a naturalist walk, a conservation exercise, Zen meditation - there is no right or wrong way to bathe in the urban wilds. This framework is inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku - bathing in the atmosphere of the forest. While this practice is open-ended with no guaranteed outcomes, it promotes physiological and emotional wellbeing through an array of evidence-based health benefits and supports integrated deepening of our relationships to self, other human beings, and the natural world.

This experience is on the trails at Ethan Allen Homestead, moving at a slow leisurely pace. This guided experience will run for approximately two to three hours, and will conclude with wild tea and a light snack. Please dress comfortably for the weather.

Public restrooms are available on site, and there are an abundance of facilitrees in the area. Please take care of bio needs accordingly, and plan to arrive a few minutes early so we can begin promptly at 9am. We will meet by the staghorn sumacs next to the parking lot that is closest to the community gardens.

Registration required.

Please reach out to with any access needs, questions, or comments!
