Summer Nature & Forest Therapy Walks
With Jane McCluskey
The forest provides more than we typically perceive. Have you caught yourself “day dreaming” as you look out a window? Caught yourself laughing with baby animal videos? Forest therapy walks are not nature hikes, and not meditation retreats. Drawing from old traditions and relatively new findings, nature and forest therapy walks are brief immersions into something you create with Nature.
What will we be doing?
Forest therapy walks are slow journeys through an area populated by natural life. We cannot tell you what you will experience; we can only tell you what we will be doing. In these guided visits, we sometimes walk, sometimes we touch the earth, sometimes we sit, and sometimes we do something different.
What it it not: These walks are not hikes whereby you will get some exercise. It is not teaching about the fauna we are meeting. It is not meditation. However, it can be all those things if you choose. We hope you will be open to something different.
