Interested in experiencing gardens and nature with all of your senses? Gardens and natural spaces support a wide variety of life and have much to share with us when we slow down and connect with the land that supports us all. Why not join a group of up to 10 people for a time of guided meditation and gentle walking, noticing all that the more-than-human-world has on offer. Ann Martin will be offering four 45-minute guided garden bathing sessions based on the principles of shinrin-yoku or forest bathing. Participants will meet at Dancing/Morning Mist.

Sign-up sheets will be available at the church when you pick up your pass and map. Maximum of 10 participants per group.

Her passion for connecting with the rest of the natural world stems from her background as a public historian and place-maker. You can find her at @mapletale — when she’s not in the forest, tending her native plantings or out birding.
