Forest Bathing or Therapy, inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku, is a restorative sensory exploration that supports health and healing for all beings. From increased cerebral blood flow to stronger immune defenses, come discover for yourself what happens when we unplug, slow down and open our senses to notice more of our natural surroundings. Forest Bathing is part of a global effort to tend to the stressful conditions of living in modern industrialized civilization. All the prompts, invitations, sharing and ways of participating are optional and open to interpretation.

Tam Willey (they/them) is a certified forest therapy guide, trainer, mentor and teacher with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy and founder of Toadstool Walks, a guiding practice based in Boston, Massachusetts. Tam has guided forest therapy in collaboration with the Arnold Arboretum, Harvard University, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, Mass Audubon, Boston Harbor Now, the Peabody Essex Museum, Lesley University, Boston University's School Of Theology, and more. Tam is passionate about the ways in which forest therapy can build collective empathy and compassion, broaden and heal relationships, both human and beyond, and support our remembering of our own nature.
