Join author and certified forest bathing guide Florence Williams (The Nature Fix, Heartbreak), for an immersive nature program in the Arboretum Forest. Along with other certified forest bathing guides, she will lead gentle practices and invite all participants to experience the sensory, health-giving, and mindfulness-enhancing wonders of these woods.
