About the event
This Japanese practice of immersing yourself in nature helps to alleviate the hot flashes, anxiety, and depression associated with menopause. The peaceful atmosphere of the forest and the natural elements provide deep relaxation and a calming effect. Forest bathing also offers many other health benefits, such as improved sleep, better moods, enhanced cardiovascular health, and increased focus.
A typical session involves a guided walk through a natural environment. During the walk, participants are encouraged to take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the environment and to focus on their breathing and the sensations of their bodies. The goal is to slow down and become more mindful of the present moment. The session may also include activities such as meditation, yoga, and journaling.
The session culminates with a tea ceremony and a sharing circle to provide a safe and supportive environment for women to discuss their experiences with menopause.
