Forest Therapy Walks

July 12, 2020 @ 1:30 pm 3:30 pm UTC

Join Kelly Kiss, ANFT Certified Forest Therapy Guide, to discover Forest Bathing!

Find out what it is, and what are its health and wellness benefits. We will start off with a one-hour discussion, followed by a one -hour “light” version of a forest therapy walk.

Reconnect with yourself and nature through a mindful walk in the beautiful Gardens at HCP. Kelly will offer you a unique “forest bathing” experience, an “immersion” into the space of trees, plants and the beings of the forest and gardens.

During a guided walk, Kelly will offer you a series of “invitations” or suggestions, to help you to slow down and connect with your senses. You are then invited to do what feels comfortable to you. Guides merely hold the space for the deepening and connection to happen. Moving slowly over a gentle landscape, the practice of forest therapy is accessible to people of all fitness levels, ages and abilities. All guided forest therapy walks are then concluded with a final gathering, where we share tea brewed with local plants, and a light healthy snack.
