  1. Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing) Outdoor Event: guided, meditative and sensory nature walk (outside)

    July 24, 2021, 9:15 AM - 11:30 AM @ Other 2, In person: offsite

    Come and learn about the amazing healing power of shinrin-yoku, also known as "forest bathing." Scientific research has now caught up with ancient knowledge that time spent in forests has a direct, measurable and profound effect on the human spirit and physical well-being. The shinrin-yoku process is a guided, meditative and sensory nature walk (in-person and outside) that will stimulate inspiration, foster awareness, reflection, and a deeper healing connection back to self. During this introductory Ramble, you will be guided and led through the gentle, intentional shinrin-yoku process with a series of invitations, reflections, and general information. This hike is considered an easy ramble/hike for adults and mature youth. We will meet promptly at 9:15 AM at the 16 Meriden Rd, Rockfall, CT the Highlawn Trail Connecticut Forest & Parks Association (CFPA Headquarters.) In addition each pre-registered participant will receive a nature journal, and writing prompts from a grant from the Rockfall Foundation. Although we love dogs, we ask that you refrain from including them in this program. For this session, you will be led by Alexandra Lowry of The Wisdom Alliance. She is a Certified Integrative Life Coach, Certified CFPA Ramble Guide (Connecticut Forest & Parks Association) and member of the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy Guides. Pre-registration strongly suggested. Questions? Christy Billings cbillings@russelllibrary.org
