Event details

Need to relax and reconnect? Join us for this simple Japanese method of being calm and quiet amongst the trees as nature shifts from winter to spring. Meet at the museum to learn a few tips, then walk to our forested shoreline trail. Sit and observe nature while breathing deeply to help de-stress and boost health and well-being. Afterwards join us for tea, continuing to ease back into your day by exploring our on-loan Smithsonian exhibition, “Journey Stories.”
