Forest Bathing Walk

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest. Cost: $25 Register online or by phone (206-685-8033). Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu; 206-685-8033. Ticket Link: https://www.uwbotanicgardenscatalog.org/Forest-Bathing-Walks-P1819C265.aspx.

The Search for Extraterrestrial Life: What’s It All About?

As we search for evidence of life beyond Earth, what exactly is it that we’re looking for? Astrobiology – the study of the origin, evolution, and distribution of life in the universe – raises questions about who we are, what it means to be human, how human cultures might respond to the discovery of life elsewhere. Three outstanding scholars and thinkers – an astrobiologist, an astrophysicist, and an English professor – will offer their views on these and other social and conceptual issues in astrobiology. All three have held the prestigious Blumberg Chair in Astrobiology at the John W. Kluge Center of the Library of Congress. The Kluge Center brings together the world's best thinkers to contribute to the conversation about the challenges facing democracies in the 21st century.

Forest Bathing Walk

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest. Cost: $25 Register online or by phone (206-685-8033). Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu; 206-685-8033. Ticket Link: https://www.uwbotanicgardenscatalog.org/Forest-Bathing-Walks-P1819C265.aspx.

Forest Bathing Walk

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest. Cost: $25 Register online or by phone (206-685-8033). Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu; 206-685-8033. Ticket Link: https://www.uwbotanicgardenscatalog.org/Forest-Bathing-Walks-P1819C265.aspx.

Forest Bathing Walk

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest. Cost: $25 Register online or by phone (206-685-8033). Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu; 206-685-8033. Ticket Link: https://www.uwbotanicgardenscatalog.org/Forest-Bathing-Walks-P1819C265.aspx. Saturday, September 14, 2019, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM. UW Botanic Gardens, Washington Park Arboretum, Graham Visitors Center, 2300 Arboretum Drive E, Seattle, WA 98112.
