Friday, April 21 // Forest Bathing Field Trip with a Master Herbalist // 1:00–4:00 PM

Join us for an immersion into Nature’s splendor, based on the Japanese Practice of Forest Bathing, or Shinrin-yoku, in the beautiful foothills of Boulder county.

A ‘Forest Bath’ is a rejuvenating experience and rare opportunity to slow down and be fully present, awaken your senses, explore your inner and outer landscape and (re)discover your innate connection with the more than human world.

Unlike a hike, a Forest Bathing walk’s destination is inner calm and connection through a variety of gently guided invitations and community sharing designed to call forth gratitude and foster deep listening to the wisdom of our Earth Mother. A profoundly nourishing experience for mind, body, and spirit, promoting a renewed sense that the world is alive, meaningful, enchanted, and whole. The walk will conclude with sipping delicious pine needle tea and sharing of gratitude.

Maximum # Participants: 10

RSVP for Forest Bathing:

Friday, April 21 // Cob Building Workshop //11:00 AM–4:00 PM

Arapahoe Campus, Sycamore Green (just north of Sycamore Building)

This is a beginners introduction to the design and potential of natural building techniques, specifically cob. Cob is an ancient building material, a mixture of clay soil, sand, and straw used to build and sculpt. In this workshop, participants will build and install a cob bench together. Built in place, this beautiful addition to Naropa’s campus will sit on the sycamore green for many years and many people. We will talk natural building philosophy as well as getting our hands and feel literally mixing the mud.
