“Forest Bathing” (Shinrin-yoku in Japanese) and Beach Meditation: This program is for adults and teens

Program Leader: LeighAnn Montaglione, SOFO Environmental Educator

“Shinrin-yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing.” It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. Researchers primarily in Japan and South Korea have established a robust body of scientific literature on the health benefits of spending time under the canopy of a living forest. Now their research is helping to establish shinrin-yoku and forest therapy throughout the world.

To experience “forest bathing” join SOFO on this forest walk followed by a time for a grounding meditation on the beach. Together we will explore what nature can do for your mind and why it is important to connect with nature. Please bring a lightweight folding beach chair or a towel or blanket to sit on for the meditation part of this program.

There is a $15 fee for Adults and $10 fee for children for this program. Members are free.

Advanced reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735 or email info@sofo.org.
