Forest Therapy Dec 30, 2020 5:30-7:30 pm
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!
Transforming Relationships of Humans and Nature
Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. Forest Therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to "forest bathing." Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition. We build on those benefits and look beyond, to what happens when people remember that we are a part of nature, not separate from it, and are related to all other beings in fundamental ways.
