Mindfulness walks are based on the Japanese concept of shirin-yoku, or “forest bathing.” These short and slow walks are to help participants take advantage of the physical, mental, and emotional benefits from spending time in by nature. The Conservancy has recruited a group of volunteers from various disciplines – spiritual, artistic, wellness, ecology – to appeal to the broadest group of park visitors.
While visitors may choose to bring a mindfulness approach to any of their visits to Overton Park at any time, these facilitated Mindfulness Walks will be limited to approximately ten people each.
