About the Event
Together we will celebrate the full moon and the spring equinox. Bring your whole self on this gentle, reflective walk with the land and let's see what we encounter.
Nature and Forest Therapy provides us with an opportunity to slow down and be present with self and with the world around us. We will bath in the medicine of the land (Shinrin-Yoku), a practice that first started in Japan. Forest bathing supports mental health and a healthy immune system.
Guided by Emelia Sautter, Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide, foundress of Good Medicine, Nature and Forest Therapy Practice in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
