Shinrin-yoku Forest Therapy Walks at the Resiliency Institute




The Resiliency Institute is hosting a seven-walk Shinrin-yoku Tune Your Senses series led by certified forest therapy guides beginning April 11 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Naperville Riverwalk. Free one-hour walks can be taken on the first Friday of each month, including April 6, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., at various locations.

       Shinrin-yoku is a practice of spending time in nature and forested areas for enhancing health, wellness and happiness. There is a specific intention to connect with nature for healing by mindfully moving through the landscape in ways that cultivate presence, open all the senses and create opportunities for nature communication.

       The nonprofit Resiliency Institute empowers people to live resilient lifestyles, grow resilient landscapes and build resilient communities.

Cost: $175. Location: Honorary Sindt Memorial Court, Naperville. Register at TheResiliencyInstitute.net.
