Give Yourself the Gift of Nature – EVENT IS NOW FULL

2023-12-02 @ 9:30 AM 11:30 AM

Give Yourself the Gift of Nature – EVENT IS NOW FULL Join Beth McKinlay at Camp Kawartha Environment Centre and experience the relaxing and healing impact of Forest Therapy (a.k.a. Shinrin Yoku/Forest Bathing). In this two-hour program, you will be invited to engage in several mindful nature connection practices which can help us to slow down, de-stress, and connect with the natural surroundings. These practices are accessible for all. They are not physically strenuous (there will be options for walking and/or sitting) and a knowledge of the natural world is not required as the focus is on using our senses and curiosity to connect with and explore our surroundings. Participants often comment that a Forest Therapy program leaves them with a greater sense of well-being and an appreciation of their interconnection with the “more than natural world.” Insights may arise during mindful nature connection practices that empower our efforts to live in a more conscious relationship with ourselves, each other and with nature. We will begin and end the program indoors. Dress for the weather as we will be moving slowly when we go outdoors. Bring a mug if you would like to enjoy some warm tea. Accessibility: easy.
