Touched by Nature: A virtual introduction to Nature Therapy with Sandy Fortin
January 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Have you been “Touched by Nature”? Are you craving that connection again? Nature heals all: body, mind, and spirit. Join us for a reflection of Nature’s way of nurturing. In this virtual introduction to Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing or nature therapy), we shall escape and share experiences beyond your backyard as we “Experience Virtually: Outdoor Live” in and near Acadia National Park.
We shall end our Shinrin-Yoku mindful journey with a cup of tea, as we reflect and share in the conversation. Participants should find a comfortable place to sit without interruptions. Preferably sit or lay near a sunny window with a view of nature. We may stand and move slightly to sense what is near us. Headphones help enhance the senses and overall experience. Colorful pictures of nature or indoor plants/foods within arm’s reach are helpful props. Please have a thermos of your warm tea to enjoy at the end and a healthy snack if you wish. FREE: Bar Harbor Blueberry Tea for guests registered at least 1 week prior.
Presented by Sandy Fortin, Certified Association of Forest and Nature Therapy Guide, Quality Life Consultant, and Alternative Healing Practitioner of Energy Elements. Sandy will share basic Shinrin-Yoku techniques and tips so you may practice at home in your backyard and far beyond.
This free event will be online via Zoom and is open to all. If you have more questions about this event or if you would like to register and receive the link please call the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center at 664-0339 or email: [email protected].
