Cobblestone Springs Retreat Center
October 5th, 1:30-4:00pm
Take a stunning Fall drive out to Cobblestone Springs Retreat Center just above Seneca Lake...
Join us and immerse in the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, loosely translated into Forest Bathing (fully clothed!). This is not your usual walk in the woods. You will be skillfully guided in a slow, enjoyable, full sensory experience of the forms, sounds, fragrances, textures, tastes and wisdom of the forest. The walk will be concluded with a tea ceremony of wild tea, foraged from the grounds of Cobblestone Springs.
REGISTER in ADVANCE by called Cobblestone Springs at 607-243-8212 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Free-will donations only! Please bring any donation with you to offer directly to Cobblestone Springs.
Cobblestone Springs is an interdenominational retreat/renewal center located in the Finger Lakes Region of rural Upstate New York. Housed in an historic 1840s cobblestone mansion, it overlooks the Seneca Lake valley.

All of our ancestors lived in the forest; it’s in our DNA. After millennia of connection, it’s only in the last century that have we lost so much of this knowing. An epidemic of stress-related disease and environmental crises has ensued.
Forest bathing (aka Shinrin-Yoku or Forest Therapy) is a powerful path to reconnecting our human selves with the more-than-human world. Through playful invitations that engage all 8 of our senses, we expand our awareness of the natural world and receive guidance for our lives and our world from the forest and the beings who call it home. This isn’t new. It’s a remembering.

“This was a new way to experience the forest that is healing and life changing. You will never walk in the woods the same way again! You can be healed by the forest. The connection and the peace were beyond words. The world would be a much more peaceful place if the whole world were taught how to do this.” - Forest Bathing participant, Bani Aello
