Winter Forest Bathing Retreat – Shinrin Yoku

February 16, 2024 - February 19, 2024

Experience the healing power of nature

Join us for 3 days of guided Forest Bathing using The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT) method. In the quiet beauty of winter, we will take daily immersive walks where you can connect with Limina’s ancient trees, streams, meadows and ocean.  We see with fresh eyes and hear with new ears in different seasons – what will the winter landscape share with your spirit?


‘In the practice of forest bathing we immerse our senses in the special qualities of the fluid, oceanic ambiance of the woodlands. We walk slowly so we can focus our senses on the myriad ways the living forests surrounds and touches us. Feel the breeze on your skin, hear the gurgling voices of the brook and the calls of birds, see the movement of the trees in the wind. By giving attention to your senses, you turn down the volume on the cacophony of inner thoughts. Your senses bring you into the present moment where you can take in all the forest has to offer, welcoming it, letting it settle inside you. When the forest is allowed its place within you, it supports your body’s natural capacity for Wellness and healing’. 

Your guide to Forest Bathing – M. Amos Clifford



We will enjoy nature therapy sessions each day of the retreat, either morning or afternoon depending on the weather.  We have some snowshoes to share, but guests are encouraged to bring their own. There will also be plenty of unstructured time to use all of Limina’s amenities such as the sauna and biomat, and enjoy sitting by the fire, yoga and ChiGong classes, and observing the sunrise/sunset.  Reiki, massage and other healing arts will also be available for an additional charge.


DATES: The retreat begins Friday February 16th at 5 pm and concludes on Monday February 19th at 1 pm. Guests may extend their stay one or two additional nights to enjoy the quiet healing of Limina.


FEES: We offer different levels of room rates to suit a variety of budgets. Scholarships are also available. For one person, a three-night stay ranges from @ $675 – $1360 depending on the room and rate chosen. All meals, beverages and snacks are included.
