About the event

Wellness Wednesday: Forest Therapy

led by Anne Marie Nachman, Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFT) Certified Guide.

Registration is required. Registration opens 7 days before the event.

Location: Barrens to Bald Eagle Wildlife Corridor

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early so the program can begin promptly at 6:00 PM.

During a Forest Therapy walk, the trained Forest Therapy guide uses a  clearly defined sequence of events and invitations in partnership with the forest which allows participants to slow down, allow the senses to  open, and to experience the environment using all of the awakened senses to deepen the reciprocal relationship between participants and the forest. This supports the wholeness and well-being of both.

The invitations are open-ended. There is no expectation for how to participate or what you experience or receive. Rather, you spend time in  silence, listening and feeling with a quiet and accepting presence. You become reconnected with your senses and your innate creative potential is tapped, which allows the imagination to awaken.

Wellness Wednesdays are part of Centred Outdoors' efforts to offer equitable opportunities for outdoor recreation at nearby natural  spaces. The series highlights paths to wellness, engages the community,  and includes local partners.
