Forest Therapy: A Guided Walk

September 7, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Forest Therapy: A Guided Walk
Saturday, September 7 from 9 AM to 12 PM 
Strawberry Fields Nature Preserve, Amsterdam, NY

Join us for our first-ever forest therapy walk! Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. In Japan it is called shinrin yoku, which translates to “forest bathing.” Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition.

Diane Kavanaugh-Black, a certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide, will lead our group on a slow walk through the beautiful habitats of Strawberry Fields Nature Preserve. Diane will guide us to incorporate sensory connection and embodied awareness as foundations for mindful presence as we enjoy and observe the natural beauty which surrounds us.
