You may wonder what the benefits are, but the absence of sight promotes the idea that activities in the dark heightens one’s senses making for a more pleasurable experience. The focus is instead on taste, smell, texture and sound, as well as promoting the art of being present. Participants will enter a warmly lit room, and will be accompanied by staff to our sensorial garden and seated before being blindfolded and plunged into darkness to enjoy this unique sensory experience.
