CANCELLED DUE TO SNOW - Forest Bathing

Forest Bathing - Feb. 24th
45.00

Imagine yourself in the midst of a forest. Let yourself simply BE. Breathe the aroma. Listen to the sounds. See the forest in all its wonder. Relax. Go slow. Discover. Connect.

This is Forest Bathing (known as Shinrin-yoku in Japan) and for some it represents the potential to improve health, heart and mind. Studies show that this type of connection with nature is restorative and healing.

Now imagine Forest Bathing at Wildwood. Here, the ancient trees drip with moss and the forest floor pops with new growth and energy. It is immediate; it is timeless; and it sustains through the seasons.

Join Michael Timney, our facilitator and registered clinical counsellor, in this experiential wellness practice with benefits that can be carried home with you.

Time: 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Studies show that people with chronic heart failure, poor immune response, inflammation, type II diabetes, depression and anxiety can benefit from exposure to forested environments.

Participants of this walking Forest Therapy learn to slow down, proper body positioning, appropriate cadence, cognitive awareness, effective breathing and good mind form.

Forest Bathing - Mar. 24th

More than just a walk in the woods!

Forest Bathing has arisen out of contemporary Japan and is now being noticed on our side of the Pacific. There are many things it is not. It may not be like any way you’ve spent time in the forest before.

It has proven potential to calm mind and spirit; scientists have parsed out some of the micro particles of the forest’s medicinal properties; yet Forest Bathing is not something you think your way through.

Forest Bathing can be practiced individually or loosely with others. Please accept this invitation to dip your toes into the practice.

Come open yourself to the nurturing forest.
