Forest Therapy Walk – Sinsinawa
Forest Therapy Walk
Sunday, Dec. 22, 1–3:30 p.m.
Forest Therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Forest Bathing. 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 stabilizing and improving mood and cognition. Richard Collins, a guide in Practicum for the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, will lead us on this walk which requires no exceptional skill or exertion.
