Forest Bathing with Your Dog: Talk & Book-Signing
Saturday, February 29, 1:30-2:30pm

Included with Admission

Instructor: Nadine Mazzola

This first-of-its-kind book brings together the deep connection we have with our dogs and nature. A must-have for dog owners who want to reduce stress and anxiety for their dogs and themselves!
Is forest bathing for me and my dog? Yes! You don't need a swimsuit-no special attire required. Forest-bathing is accessible to all levels of fitness and mobility. It is a new (and very old) type of restorative stroll in the woods with your dog.

Why do forest bathing with my dog? If you feel like you are bouncing from one thing to the next, never relaxing, forest-bathing will reduce your stress, reset your nervous systems, have lasting positive effects on your immune system, and increase the well-being of both you and your dog. This is another way of being outdoors that your dog will love, and I think you will, too.

What is it like to forest bathe with my dog? It's a natural fit. You don't have to go far. More of a meander or sitting that pairs easily with the natural rhythm of your regular routine. The aim of forest-bathing is to slow down, become immersed in the natural environment, and use your senses to tune in to the smells, textures, tastes, and sights of the forest.

It's love story. While this book is a guide about forest bathing with your dog, it's also a bit of a love story about your relationships with your dog, the forests you walk in, and the land you live on.
