On this unique forest bathing experience, you'll be guided on a gentle, mindful stroll through gardens designed and created by the late Hawaii artist Hiroshi Tagami. The grounds of the Kahaluu Gallery and Gardens are an ideal setting to leave behind the stresses of the world and get in touch with the healing powers of the natural world. As we move through the garden and follow the paved switchback which descends into the forested gully at the back of the property, your certified forest therapy guide will offer a series of "invitations" to help you re-connect with nature and with yourself through your senses. "Forest Bathing" (translated from "Shinrin-Yoku," an established public health practice in Japan) is a growing global wellness movement backed by 30 years of scientific research on the physical and psychological benefits of immersing yourself in nature. Forest Bathing Hawaii was recently ranked #3 in the world of "incredible once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences" by Forbes.com. Please bring hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, mosquito repellant. For your safety and comfort, it's recommended that you wear close-toed shoes w/ good traction; light-weight long-sleeved shirt & long pants.
