Event Type: 
All are welcome
Event Description: 

Join us for an engaging and interactive, virtual evening presentation to learn about the healing benefits of practicing shinrin-yoku, also known as forest bathing. 

Research now confirms what ancient philosophies have always understood, that time spent with trees, has a profound positive effect on human biology and emotional wellness.  Introduced by the Japanese in the early 1980’s, the shinrin-yoku practice has gained significant interest across the globe in the last few years as a powerful practice that anyone can benefit from. 

You will learn how this practice came about, what research has confirmed, and how you can incorporate this practice into your own health and wellness routine.

Alexandra Lowry has been an Integrative Life Coach since 2013, and began offering events and lectures as a Nature Therapy Guide, after discovering the shinrin-yoku practice, and incorporating it into her own personal wellness plan five years ago.  Since then, Alexandra has coached and led hundreds of individuals and presented lectures and workshops on the subject, including as a guest lecturer at the 35th Connecticut Land Conservation Conference held last year at Wesleyan University and the International Forest & Nature-Based Health and Wellness Practices Summit in June 2020.
