Experience Forest Bathing with EcoWisdom in Sonoma County

Join us for a transformative forest bathing experience at various stunning locations around Sonoma County, including wineries, hotels, and spas. Led by certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide, Jenny Harrow-Keeler, discover the art of Shinrin-Yoku (forest bathing), a practice that promotes mindfulness and reconnects us with nature’s healing power.

Forest bathing, or Shinrin-Yoku, is a practice developed in Japan that involves immersing oneself in the forest atmosphere to reduce stress, enhance well-being, and boost overall health. Through guided meditation and sensory exploration, participants learn to slow down, disconnect from technology, and appreciate the natural world. This experience is perfect for visitors seeking tools to tap into the present moment during their vacation and for those interested in transformative travel practices that they can take home with them. Forest bathing can be a life-changing practice, offering profound benefits for mental and physical well-being.

Forest bathing offers scientifically proven benefits, including stress reduction, anxiety relief, improved sleep quality, lowered blood pressure, and a strengthened immune response. Similar to yoga and meditation, forest bathing is best experienced with a trained guide. Once you learn the basic techniques, you can continue practicing on your own to reap its ongoing benefits.
