GUIDED GROUP FOREST THERAPY WALK
Sunday, June 6th
Join us for this slow, quiet, and meditative guided forest therapy experience with certified Forest Therapy Guide, Sobhana Dilani Hippola.
Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. Forest Therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to “forest bathing.” Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition. We build on those benefits and look beyond, to what happens when people remember that we are a part of nature, not separate from it, and are related to all other beings in fundamental ways. (Association of Nature & Forest Therapy)
