About this event


This activity has been cancelled.

Learn contemplative and creative nature-based practices that can benefit mood and physical wellness. Research on the connections between health and nature will be explored. Forest Therapy or “Forest Bathing” is one of the researched nature practices connecting our health with the health of the forest. By “bathing” or breathing in the forest’s aerosols (phytoncides), as well as sensing the colors, sounds, textures, and smells, we can improve our immune systems, our moods, and decrease chronic stress. Using forest therapy guided sensory invitations, nature writing, movement, earth art making, and more, we will discover uplifting and meaningful relationships with nature- on our own inner and outer journeys. Besides experiencing the gifts of nature, we will learn how we can gratefully reciprocate and give back. Instructor: Willow Dejesus, ANFT Certified Forest Therapy Guide, Occupational Therapist. Location: Bidwell Park. Specific location and basic equipment needs will be emailed to you. For more info on Forest Therapy, please visit myforesttherapyrx.com Must register 5 days before class.
