About Bathing in the "Winter Forest" by Suzy Vance

In this exhibit, Suzy Vance introduces us to the benefits of Shinrino-yoku or Forest Bathing. Using a combination of imagery and Haiku poetry, the artist invites you to grow your awareness of the healing power of nature. She wrote, “Walking mindfully in nature can be healing. It helps the mind and body relax and often fosters insight.” Vance’s photographs and Haiku snapshots are presented on aluminum and arranged throughout the gallery. She hopes to help visitors find an easy and free way to care for themselves and change their lives: “Forest Bathing.”
