Out with the old and in with the new! Take a forest therapy walk to recharge, re-energize, and reconnect to nature. December 30 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
Full Moon Forest Therapy
Join us for a moonlight forest therapy walk on ELC’s lagoon island campus! This slow-paced and easy walk will help you unwind and tap into all of your senses for a truly immersive nature experience. By way of moonlight, we’ll send off our messages to 2020 as we set intentions and wishes for the coming year. This outdoor, moonlight experience will be socially distanced with face coverings required when we cannot retain distance. Spaces are limited so reserve your spot today!
Benefits of Forest Therapy
Forest Therapy, also known as “Shinrin-Yoku” refers to the practice of spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness. The practice follows the general principle that it is beneficial to spend time bathing in the atmosphere of the forest. In this class, we will spend time in nature in a way that invites healing interactions. There is a long tradition of this in cultures throughout the world.
We encourage becoming fully present through an evolving series of invitations given by our Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT) certified guide, who has learned to listen deeply to the forest and often co-create these invitations in the moment, working in partnership with the forest and what it offers. Each invitation is crafted to help participants slow down and open our senses, giving the forest access to our emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual being.
