Winter Solstice Forest Bathing Walk

Sunday, December 18th, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

This begins a time of rest and deep reflection, a time to wipe the slate clean and clear out the old so you can anticipate Spring feeling ready to grow. It is a time for the medicine of story, of fire, of nourishment and love. Winter is actually kind as she points us in her quiet, soft way towards our inner selves, reminding us the everything is connected. Winter takes away the distractions, the noise and presents us with the perfect time to rest and withdraw, bringing fire & light to our hearth and hearts. Join certified forest guide Lombardo for the following activities:

  • We may create some Nature Frames: What you see in nature becomes a portrait or landscape. Seek the beautiful. Seek the imperfect. Seek whatever speaks to you. 
  • How Many Seasons? The forest is always in one season with memories of seasons past and promises of seasons to come. Find a tree that’s already created its Spring buds; look for Skunk cabbage, bursting through the Earth despite the cold. Look for Witch Hazel in bloom.
  • We’ll Connect with a Tree and maybe even have  a conversation. Maybe it’s a tree you’ve visited before. Maybe it’s a new one. Get curious about how it perceives Winter. Share your thoughts. What can you learn? Express gratitude at the end of your conversation with some forest art or a hug.
  • What would the start of Winter be without some Winter Blessings: We’ll create some small scrolls; small enough to hide places in the forest or around a tree, using only that which will decompose with the snow and rain.

While most walks end with a ceremonial tea, this walk could end a bit differently with a hot elderberry cacao, something ancient and warming inside and out.
