Forest Bathing and Outdoor Meditations

Fall in the Berkshires, with its dramatic vibrant colors, is the perfect time to connect with the healing atmosphere of the forest. Experience nature’s beauty and the calming effects of Shinrin Yoku Forest Bathing—a popular Japanese practice that rebalances the body and senses through the proven stress-reduction benefits of simply walking in the woods.

This week, experience

  • An introduction to Forest Bathing in nearby Bullard Woods, one of the few remaining old-growth forests in New England, and the trails of the Yokun Ridge
  • Walking meditations and mindfulness exercises to quiet the mind and soothe the nervous system
  • Gentle yoga to root you in the present moment
  • Walking lectures focusing on the cultural and natural history of the Kripalu campus.

With Kripalu’s gorgeous grounds as your backyard, this program is the perfect outdoor escape before the winter season is upon us.
