Forest Bathing Walk
May 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Experience the healing benefits of The Emerald Necklace on a “Forest Bathing Walk” through Franklin Park. Immerse yourself in the “Wilderness” of Franklin Park with Tam Willey, a forest therapy guide. Listen to the migrating birds and explore the textures of the puddingstone in this urban woodland as we slow down and awaken our senses. Forest Bathing, inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku, is a restorative sensory exploration that supports health and healing for all beings. From increased cerebral blood flow to stronger immune defences, come discover for yourself what happens when we unplug, slow down and open our senses to notice more of our natural surroundings. Forest Bathing is part of a global effort to tend to the stressful conditions of living in modern industrialized civilization. All the prompts, invitations, sharing and ways of participating are optional and open to interpretation.
Walk to meet at Valley Gates Parking Lot, Franklin Park.
