ParkRx—Forest Bathing Walk (CA State Parks Week)

Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
ParkRx—Forest Bathing Walk (CA State Parks Week) Description:
Have you heard about ‘Shinrin-yoku’ or ‘forest bathing’? Here is an opportunity to take a walk and experience the practice for yourself. Learn techniques to maximize the health benefits and stress reducing qualities of this walking practice. Shinrin-yoku originated in Japan and is gaining popularity in the United States for its documented health benefits.

This practice takes a walk in the woods to another level. A centering and calming restorative practice, it promotes balance and restored vitality through a quality of presence and heightened sensory awareness. Sugarloaf Ridge State Park hosts a Forest Therapy Series as part of its Park Rx Program the 4th Sunday of the month led by certified Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT) practitioners.

We invite you to join us on this therapeutic experience of sights, sounds, scents, touch, and memory. The outing begins at the White Barn and meanders less than one mile from the start point in a reverie of introspection and connection to the natural world. The event, usually $20 or free with a ParkRx, is free but requires registration, as space is very limited. Not recommended for children under 12. Wear comfortable shoes, bring water, layers, and if desired, a snack. Parking fees apply.
