Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden – Slow Down. Awaken your senses. Bear witness to yourself and all beings. Inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin Yoku, Forest Bathing has been scientifically proven to boost immune strength, reduce stress, and improve cognitive functioning. But beyond these physiological changes, Forest Bathing also offers us the opportunity to deepen our relationship with the natural world. By slowing down and carefully observing with all our senses, we may begin to notice incredible things that may have eluded us for our whole lives. In escaping the rapid pace of our daily routines, we may find unparalleled beauty in the moment and in doing so, relax into the beauty all around us. On your walk, a certified guide will offer a series of guided invitations to assist you in finding your own authentic way of interacting with the land at the Los Angeles Arboretum. The end of each walk features a tea ceremony where you will enjoy tea made from plants foraged on site and some healthy snacks! There’s no right or wrong way to do it and it’s great for all ages; just come and be yourself. It’s all welcome in the forest.
