RSVP for Shinrin-Yoku Feb. 29th, 2pm
Gather near the entrance to the main grove loop at Henry Cowell Redwoods. We will start with a brief explanation of shinrin-yoku practice, plus calling the corners and a brief meditation to prepare us. Then we’ll spend an hour or more on our own, gently and reverently immersing ourselves in the sensory experience of the redwood grove. At the end, we’ll re-assemble and share insights from our experiences.
We will be outdoors for the full two hours – please dress in layers, be ready for the cool and damp weather (it's almost always much cooler in the forest than in town), and wear comfortable clothes and shoes for spending time on this easy and accessible forest trail. If you won’t be able to walk or stand for the full length of time, please bring a portable chair or stool, and we’ll help you settle in somewhere to enjoy the grove. We will share some forest tea at the end of the walk -- please bring a cup or mug if you can.

Do you want to join a carpool to go into the park? (Parking fee is $10 per car without a pass. Sharing the ride also reduces the carbon footprint of this outing.)
