Forest Therapy Walk
December 22, 2019 9:00 am - 11:30 am$15.00
Forest Therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Forest Bathing. Forest Therapy is not a naturalist walk. Rather, it is a slow, meditative walk in nature that takes a holistic view to the physiological, mental, emotional, and psycho-spiritual benefits to be derived from an embodied contact with nature and aims to engage humans through their senses, not their intellects. Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems and stablizing and improving mood and cognition. The walk requires no exceptional skill or exertion.
Sunday, December 22, 9 – 11:30 a.m. $15 fee.
