Discover the unique urban wilderness of Peddocks Island and unravel the fascinating stories embedded in its rich history. This is a rare and unique opportunity to explore this island in a different way, connecting with nature and ourselves. Ticket includes: Round- trip ferry ticket from Long Wharf Boston All day workshop on forest bathing as well as time for personal exploration Snack Optional lunch available for an additional charge About Forest Bathing: Forest Bathing is inspired by Shinrin-yoku, a prominent feature of preventative medicine and healing in Japan. From increased cerebral blood flow to stronger immune defenses, there has been extensive research demonstrating what can happen when we relax, unplug, and open our senses to the natural world. This slow-paced guided therapeutic experience promotes wellness through a series of gentle sensory-opening invitations that welcome us to notice more of our natural surroundings. By deepening our connection with the natural world and each other, we open ourselves up to the healing medicine of the forest. Forest Bathing is part of a global effort to tend to the stressful conditions of living in modern industrialized civilization.
