Come join us on a “Forest Bathing” guided walk on Sunday, August 25th at 10AM with Sharon Lohse, RN, a forest guide trained at the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFT). Celebrate the start of summer with relaxation, rejuvenation, and refreshment as we walk through the grounds of the beautiful Bucks County Audubon Society and learn the art of Forest Therapy.
(Sunday) 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Forest Therapy is a gentle practice that involves moving very slowly and mindfully through nature, soaking it in with all of our senses. It is a relaxing experience that connects people to natural environments through sensory-based invitations. It is not hiking in the traditional sense. An entire walk is typically 2-21/2 hours in duration and often covers no more than a quarter mile distance. In that short distance, most people experience contact with nature in a much deeper way that they ever have prior to the walk. Peel the layers of stress away and support healing by experiencing the medicine of the forest during this relaxed and mindful guided wander. We’ll do a series of relaxing and engaging activities to engage our senses, deepen nature connection, hone intuition, and connect with the natural world around us.
