Description

Forest Bathing for Health and Wellness

Saturday, October 12, 8:00 – 11:00 am

Presented by Maggie Brown, MSN, RN, Certified Forest Therapy Guide.

Forest Bathing, also known as Shinrin Yoku or Forest Therapy, is an ancient practice which is now supported by scientific research. Improved immune function, reduced cortisol levels, increased cognition and memory, and improved mood are just some of the clinical findings. Forest Bathing walks are led by a trained guide who provides support in connecting with the more than human world. A traditional walk is two to three hours. Participants move at a slow pace and are invited to experience the environment around them in a sensorial manner. There is no right or wrong, the focus is rediscovering your personal knowing of nature. Leave the hectic world behind and join us. Maggie is an Advanced Holistic Nurse who specializes in stress management. Over 32 years as a nurse in acute care, primary care, and integrative care settings, she witnessed the importance of nature connection and health and healing. These experiences encouraged Maggie to participate in a rigorous six-month training with the Association of Nature and Forest Guides. The forest is the therapist; the guide opens the door.

$40 for members of Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens and/or Pennsylvania Horticultural Society; $50 for non-members. Registration required.
