In Japan, the practice of shinrin-yoku, or "forest bathing" is hailed for its therapeutic effects. Proponents believe that by simply immersing ourselves in the atmosphere of a forest, we can soak in the healing power of trees. In a fast-paced world, forest bathing is a chance to be mindful of our surroundings, and to connect with nature through our senses. At this talk, Dr. Yoshifumi Miyazaki, former deputy director of Chiba University's Center for Environment, Health, and Field Sciences and author of Shinrin Yoku: The Japanese Art of Forest Bathing, examines the scientific evidence behind the concept of forest bathing and its potential to enhance wellness and happiness. Discover how you can connect with nature through this Japanese tradition, wherever you live. 
In Japanese with English interpretation. Followed by a book signing reception. 
Tickets: $15/$12 members, seniors & students
