Welcome to One Washington Circle Hotel Event Calendar - A District of Columbia Hotel
July 15, 16, & 17 Full Moon - Forest Bathing
When was the last time you fully immersed yourself in the light of the full moon? Join us for this unique experience! This is a great alternative to the full moon hikes we also host for those who want a much slower paced experience on the grounds of the US National Arboretum under the moon. Forest bathing, or shinrin yoku, is the simple practice of taking in the woods through the senses for health benefits. The benefits are immense: boosted immunity, lowered blood pressure and heart rate, improved attention and mood, and hitting the reset button on life. The Japanese have enjoyed shinrin yoku for decades as a regular public health initiative. This one-of-a-kind full moon bathing program is coming to the National Arboretum. Notice how your senses change as the full moon lights up the canopy floor. Join certified nature and forest therapy guide Clare Kelley for an unforgettable experience in the National Arboretum, the crown jewel of DC's wildspaces. In the two-hour program, Clare will guide you through invitations: sensory and interactive experiences to reap the healing gifts of nature. Relax deeply, raise your mood, immune system, and sense of coherency. Reconnect with the earth's beauty and wisdom, plus end the evening with a tea ceremony. Tickets are $35 (FONA Members get a discount). Once purchased you will receive more info closer to the event on how to prepare. Ages 16 and up for this experience. No refunds. More info sent once registered. More info: Suffering From Nature Deficit Disorder? Try Forest Bathing Forest Bathing: A Retreat To Nature Can Boost Immunity And Mood
