What is Forest Bathing? Forest Therapy, also known as “Shinrin-Yoku,” is the practice of immersing oneself in forest environments to boost overall well-being. This therapeutic practice focuses on the healing benefits of simply being present and breathing in the natural world.

Meet Your Walk Leader – Roz Greenfield: Roz Greenfield, a successful entrepreneur and tech executive, has turned to nature to balance the high velocity and stress of the tech world. As her connection with nature grew, she found that Forest Bathing profoundly enhanced her experiences and made her time outdoors more meaningful.

Roz is deeply concerned about the human impact on our climate and believes that Forest Bathing fosters a deeper connection to nature, leading to increased awareness and respect for the environment. As a Certified Forest Bathing Guide, she collaborates with the forest to create a space where humans can engage in a reciprocal relationship with nature. Roz’s certifications include Forest Bathing from ANFT and Wilderness First Aid from Survival Med.

  • Sensory Invitations: Engage in a series of invitations that awaken your senses and enhance your receptivity to the healing aspects of nature immersion.
  • Mindful Pauses: Take moments along the way to notice and reflect on your experiences, enriching your practice and deepening your connection to nature.
