Forest Bathing and the Benefits of Nature Connection

Presented by Jeff Brogan of Maine Coast Explorers LLC

Forest Bathing, also known as “Shinrin-Yoku,” refers to the practice of spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness.  Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition.  Join us for a lively discussion focusing on how changing our relationship with nature can increase our happiness and the health of our planet.

Jeff Brogan is a Nature & Forest Therapy Guide, as well as a professional Maine Guide and owner of Maine Coast Explorers, LLC.  Jeff has spent a lifetime exploring the fields, forests, and waters of Maine.   Maine Coast Explorers was founded to help reconnect people to the natural world.  Jeff believes that connecting people to the heartbeat and natural rhythms of Maine creates a newfound understanding and love of nature that can have profound affects upon their lives and our planet.  Jeff offers Forest Bathing experiences for those looking to decompress and reconnect to the way life should be.  He also offers private and group recreational and historical tours along the coast of Maine.
