Come and experience the magic of nature in the Lower Hudson Valley in a whole new way through immersing yourself in one of the area's best-kept secrets: the expansive forests of Blue Mountain Park in Peekskill, NY (just over an hour north of NYC).
We'll explore a small section of the forest and connect with nature through a slow-paced, easeful sensory exploration based on the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku ("forest bathing"). Decades of studies have discovered a wide range of health benefits associated with this practice, including stress relief, better sleep, lowered blood pressure and inflammation, and improved immunity.
Your trained and certified guide will lead the way, offering optional invitations that are designed to help you step into your own authentic way of being in the outdoors.
When we intentionally slow ourselves down and awaken our senses, we can find a sense of connection with parts of ourselves and the natural world that we may not have even noticed we were missing.
Forest therapy is for everybody. No special skills or equipment required. We'll cover about 1 mile in distance total, taking plenty of seated breaks along the way for our invitations. Consider this a mini-retreat for the mind, body, and soul.
Come and sit; we will hold space for you. All are welcome.

About Forest Baths
pHi! I'm Fru Molnar (she/her), the founder of Forest Baths. I'm a lifelong student of the forest and a Certified Forest Therapy Guide with the ANFT (Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides). I am based in Peekskill, NY (Lenapehoking), and I guide immersive forest therapy experiences in partnership with all the "more-than-human" beings on this land, as well as virtually online. I'm also an avid hiker of 10 years and a passionate advocate of mindfulness in nature as the ultimate form of self-care. I guide a somatic-based and heart-led modality of meditation that aims to awaken the innate reciprocal relationship between humans and our natural world, by helping participants find their own authentic way of being with nature in whatever way feels best. /ppWe encourage all people in all bodies to participate and do our absolute best to make this experience as safe, gentle, and accessible as possible, so please reach out if you have any concerns or questions at all./p
