Forest Bathing with Shanta Gabriel: Forest Bathing, or Shinrin-Yoku, a Japanese practice of relaxation in nature, has been shown to improve immune response, mental performance, and creativity. Enjoy an easy, mindful walk through beautiful Arboretum trees in a special environment.

Balance in Nature with Kanta Lipsky: Deepen your appreciation of nature by joining in a mindful half hour of gentle movements drawn from the Chi Kung tradition of Tai Chi with Kanta Lipsky. Set among the Arboretum’s diverse collection of trees, this practice will strengthen our connection to the earth and increase our body’s ability to maintain good balance.
