Immerse Yourself In Nature Along A Rare Forest Bathing Trail In Minnesota’s Silverwood Park
Have you ever heard of forest bathing? Despite how it sounds, it does not involve soaping up in the middle of the woods. Forest bathing is the practice of immersing oneself in the forest atmosphere, a concept that first found a foothold in Japan in the 1980s. Forest bathers put away their phones and other devices, and they work on taking in the forest through all of their senses.
While forest bathing is still a new concept for many, it is slowly catching on. In Minnesota, a recently certified forest bathing trail invites visitors into the woods, where they can engage in a unique form of meditation as they take in the forest’s sights, sounds, smells, and feel. Sound interesting? Read on below to learn more about the trail.
