Forest Bathing at Shelburne Farms
Experience the winter wonderland and connect to nature. Slowly walk and pause amongst the quiet dormant trees, fluttering birds and scurrying animals. Enjoy the stunning beauty on the land, the light of the sun and the crisp winter air. Give yourself this time to slow down, de-stress and follow your certified guide through a series of sensory connection invitations to practice Forest Bathing and a new level of Nature Mindfulness. A hot locally foraged tea will be served.
Instructor Duncan Murdoch grew up on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain in rural Vermont where his deep connection to Nature was formed. After receiving Nature & Forest Therapy Guide Certification from the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy Guides and Programs, he began his official practice in New York City by guiding the first Forest Bathing groups through the Loch Trail in Central Park. After creating NYC’s first Shinrin-Yoku trail on Randall’s Island, he moved back to Vermont where he now hosts walks throughout the state through his outfit, Nature Connection Guide.
