Forest Bathing Inspired Meditation

Monday, September 27, 2021
5:00pm – 6:00pm

Storrs Campus
Garden behind the Benton Museum

Please join Student Heath and Wellness (SHaW), the Asian American Cultural Center, and the Benton Museum of Art on Monday, Sept 27th at 5pm for a forest bathing inspired meditation in the garden behind the Benton Museum. Forest Bathing, a term derived from the Japanese physiological and psychological exercise, shinrin-yoku, bridges the gap between us and the natural world. It is being in nature and connecting with it through our senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. Join Nishelli Ahmed, Health Educator from SHaW, in an opportunity to disconnect from tech and reconnect with the natural beauty easily accessible on UConn Storrs’ campus. We suggest wearing comfortable clothes and shoes, putting phones and other electronics on "do not disturb," and bringing something to sit on (yoga mat, blanket, etc.)
