Forest Bathing

The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History gives you a very special opportunity to deepen your relationship with nature through the environment of marsh, creek, forest, dunes and beach habitats. Join Carol Marcy on a guided walk where you will be shown how to pay attention in a new way that will create a sense of greater health, well-being and appreciation of the beauty in you and around you.

The concept of forest bathing grew out of a practice in Japan called Shinrin-yoku that spread to China and Korea and now to the United States. It is about swimming in the living being of the forest as the walk becomes a meditation through which you can experience your deep interconnectedness with nature and the forest.

CCMNH Field Guide Carol Marcy has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and Master’s degree in Dance/Movement Therapy and teaches classes in meditation.

The walk is approximately 1.5 miles round-trip over somewhat challenging terrain and lasts approximately 90 minutes.
