World Forest Bathing Day Walk in Edmonton, AB
Time & Location
About The Event
Join Laura McLaughlin, a Nature & Forest Therapy Guide, for a Forest Therapy walk on Saturday, September 8th at 12:00pm at the Whitemud Park Nature Reserve.
September 8th is World Forest Bathing Day - a day where people around the globe will participate in thiswonderful practice.
Forest therapy, or forest bathing, is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, as well as indigenous teachings and traditions. Scientifically proven to reduce stress, improve blood pressure and heart rate, improve mood and much more, this practice is gaining worldwide recognition as an accessible, safe and effective path to wellness and connection.
During this 2.5-hour walk, we will slow down to engage our senses and connect with nature. You will be guided through a series of connective invitations, designed to facilitate present moment awareness and open us to the wellness benefits that the forest can offer.
The walk will conclude with tea and a light snack.
The number of participants will be limited – ensure to sign up early to reserve your spot.
