Forest Bathing and Ephemeral Art Workshop

Slow down and immerse yourself in nature at Buffalo Ranch, home of the Land Library. This day long workshop combines the Japanese practice of forest bathing with ephemeral art making. In the morning, we’ll start with a two and a half hour forest bathing walk. Forest bathing, known as Shinrin-yoku in Japan, is the practice of opening up the senses to connect with nature. Jaime Kopke, a certified forest therapy guide, will offer you a series of invitations to help you more deeply connect with the land. These mindful wanders are slow paced and accessible to all fitness levels.

After lunch, we will explore the land of the ranch in a more playful way by creating ephemeral art. Having tapped into our senses, new possibilities and inspirations may emerge. Using only the natural materials we find, we’ll work within the constraints and freedoms we discover, forming a new partnership with the more than human world. This session is meant to be accessible to all - it is a creative practice anyone can participate in.

The workshop fee is $50, plus a $4.67 ticketing fee. More details and directions will follow. Feel free to send any questions to jeff@landlibrary.org
