Immerse yourself in the outdoors, not H20, during a session that explores the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku or forest bathing. Studies in Japan shows that people who connect to the environment through their senses reap wellness benefits. The program at Nescopeck State Park on Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. to noon will include a slow walk and times to explore and interact with nature.
