Forest Bathing: Deepening Our Relationship with Nature

Starts June 7th at Museum of Natural History

BREWSTER, MA — The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster presents Forest Bathing: Deepening our Relationship with Nature with Field Guide Carol Marcy.

The concept of forest bathing grew out of a practice in Japan called Shinrin-yoku that spread to China and Korea and now to the United States.  It is about swimming in the living being of the forest: drinking in the smells, feeling the breeze on your skin, hearing it move through the trees, soaking up the warm healing rays of the sun and touching the earth with awareness. 

The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History gives you a very special opportunity to deepen your relationship with nature because of the unique environment provided by marsh, creek, forest, dunes and beach. Join Field Guide Carol Marcy on a guided walk where you will be shown how to pay attention in a new way that will create a sense of greater health, well-being and appreciation of the beauty in you and around you.   

Carol Marcy has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and Master’s degree in Dance/Movement Therapy. As a psychologist, she worked from a holistic model and led retreats that explored our deep connection with nature. Retiring to Cape Cod in December of 2017, she teaches classes in meditation, offers retreats, and has recently completed the Field Guide training course at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.
