Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing): Developing a Deeper Connection with Self and Nature

Join us to learn some of the restorative practices of Shinrin Yoku, the Japanese art of immersing yourself in the atmosphere of a forest. We’ll take a moment to unplug, relax, and connect with the land, trees, and ecosystems of OSMP to heal and add value to our lives.

Check out this article in 5280 Magazine about a forest bathing experience with Boulder’s Recreation Coordinator: https://www.5280.com/2018/06/the-true-story-of-a-reluctant-forest-bather/ 

.

Join Live By Living and OSMP to experience the benefits of time outdoors. In this series we’ll explore how getting outside and in nature can help with reducing pain, social isolation, and many of the effects of surviving cancer. This program is geared towards anyone impacted by cancer. Sign up for one or all of these great opportunities to help you heal with deepening a connection to the natural world.

.

As always, Live By Living events are open to all cancer survivors and their caregivers.  Regardless of whether you are currently in or out of treatment, we’d love to have you join us.  If you’re uncertain whether you are physically up for a hike, please call us at 303-808-2339, and we can help you decide.
