August 27, Diane Shields, “Shinrin-Yoku.”

 Diane explains, “Unless it is TRULY unbearably hot (or if we have thunderstorms), I plan to lead an exercise of Shinrin-Yoku in UUCR’s Memorial Woodland. I attended a guided “Shinrin-Yoku” recently at Adkins Arboretum, and could feel all of the calming and healing effects for the rest of the day and into the week.  So I am excited to share this with UUCR, and plan to make this a regular practice in my own life.”
