Description

Beat to the Balance
Mari Keski-Korsu

In the context of our global humanitarian crisis we need to become more aware of our ability to nurture deep connections and build our capacities for empathic communication with other species and entities within our ecosystems.
Mari Keski-Korsu

Sign up to your free 30 minute long Beat To The Balance tree leaf massage session in Arlington Baths Club sauna with Mari Keski-Korsu or Maaria Alén. Through this ritualistic, whisking practice the interdependence between tree communities and humans can be made more tangible, heightened by the sauna space.

Self-care is not self-indulgence but self-preservation and as such, an act of political warfare.
Civil rights activist Audre Lorde.

In the sauna with trees, self-care transforms into ourselves-care, kinship that could be an even stronger asset than warfare; it is a building block for the narrative of humanity.
