Want to check out the trendiest thing in walks? The Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust is collaborating with Jade Integrated Health in Brunswick for a series of Forest Bathing classes that starts tomorrow and is directed at “finding mindfulness in nature.” For a small donation, you can experience a guided walk – err, bath – through the woods in Brunswick.

Cleo Wolf, an acupuncturist and former Buddhist monk, will lead the walk and meditation. The flier says “research has shown this therapy can improve mood, sleep, energy and focus.” It also says forest bathing can boost the immune system and lower blood pressure and stress level.” Sure, but can it help with newspaper deadlines?

Because we scoffed at avocado toast and now scarf it up regularly for breakfast, we’re signing up. See you in the woods. If you can’t make tomorrow’s session, there are two more opportunities, July 11 at 11 a.m. and Aug. 16 at 11:30 a.m.


WHAT: Forest Bathing with Cleo Wolf

WHEN: 5 p.m. Monday

WHERE: Begins at Jade Integrated Health, 12 Windorf Circle, Brunswick

HOW MUCH: $10 suggested donation
