You'll learn tips that you can take home with you and incorporate into your life to help improve sleep, reduce stress, relieve pain and feel awesome! We'll provide yoga mats but you are also welcome to bring your own if you have one. In addition to practicing in a large, private event room indoors, we'll incorporate outdoor walking, yoga and meditation when possible as there are many additional health benefits to spending time in nature.  PERKS: Enjoy FREE warm herbal tea and some free time to socialize afterwards. Participants will also get 10% OFF food and drinks purchased afterwards at the Woodfire Bar & Grille restaurant located on site. SAVE $10 by booking the full series by Noon, Oct 4.

Do you like how it feels to create but struggle to get yourself into your studio? Do you manage to pull out your brushes (or pens, or sewing machine, or…) but stress out once you do? If so, this workshop is for you! Shinrin-Yoku, a Japanese term meaning "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing,” was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. It has also been shown to improve creativity and bolster focus. Now you can experience the phenomenon right here in Asheville as artist and Forest Therapy Guide in Practicum, Kathleen Forrest, takes you on a forest bathing journey to reset your parasympathetic nervous system and jump start (or ramp up) your creative process! You’ll spend the morning in UNCA’s beautiful Botanical Gardens. Kathleen will be your guide and give you "invitations" to help connect your senses to nature. You will also learn and experience how to "be in council" with your fellow participants. After enjoying lunch in the woods, we’ll return to Purple Crayon, where you’ll use the experience of forest bathing to explore the mystery of the creative process using a variety of materials (e.g., colored pencils, chalk pastel, watercolor pencils, poster paints and watercolor paints)—and, of course, your intuition and creativity! You’ll end the workshop by sharing (if you’d like) what you’ve learned about yourself and creativity with your fellow forest bathers. For more information, or to register, visit the Purple Crayon website.
