"Bathe" your mind and body in the soothing natural landscapes of the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary. The practice of shinrin-yoku (literally "forest bathing") was developed in Japan to promote physical and mental health through deep immersion of the senses in forested settings. Reconnect with the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of nature while engaging in a gentle, quiet trail walk, guided meditations, breathing exercises, and mindfulness practices. We'll complete our walk with time for reflection and a relaxing cup of tea.
