Event description

Description

Join Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s Kim Strader for a facilitated combination of wandering, sitting, and resting that welcomes us to notice our surroundings. Through a sequence of gentle sensory-opening invitations, we will reconnect or deepen our connection with the natural world in a way that supports overall health and wellness. This slow-paced walk at Morven Park will cover no more than 1–2 miles in 2.5 hours. Nature and forest therapy walks are inspired by Shinrin-Yoku, a term coined in Japan in the 1980s, where it is a prominent feature of preventative medicine and healing. Medical and scientific evidence finds that connecting with nature helps alleviate stress-related illnesses such as high blood pressure while boosting the body’s immune system. Kim is a Nature and Forest Therapy Guide in practicum with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs. Limit 20.
