The Art of Forest Bathing

July 27July 28

Immerse yourself at Forest Lodge for a weekend of healing and wellbeing through this unique experience with Jan Wise. Learn and practice the art of forest bathing—Shinrin Yoku—which literally means “taking in the forest atmosphere.” This practice has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.

Through forest walks, meditation, creative visualization, grounding exercises, and creative writing, participants will learn techniques to connect with nature and enhance their well-being. In addition, they will leave with suggested practices for home. There will be time for you to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the north woods.

The program takes place at Forest Lodge, a unique and historic estate nestled among 872 acres of majestic forest in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and situated along the pristine shores of Lake Namekagon. The old growth forest and serene water is sure to awaken your senses and rejuvenate you.
