Forest bathing is a mindful walk in the woods with the specific intention to connect with the natural world and to gain benefit and energy from it. In other words, you are bathing in the energy of the trees, leaves, sky, and earth. Think of it as a guided, meditative, healing walk through the forests of Garret Mountain Reservation. 
 
This event will be hosted by Gerti Schoen:
Gerti Schoen is a psychotherapist, spiritual counselor, and forest therapy guide in NYC and NJ. Over the past 20 years, she has studied eco-feminist spirituality, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral approaches, Eastern philosophy, energy healing, nature connection, dreamwork, and shamanic practices, and has come to greatly appreciate how much these teachings help in the healing process.
