Mindful Nature Walk

Dyken Pond Environmental Education Center

Join Sandy Wilson from Spirit of Dragonflies, LLC to celebrate the wonders of the outdoors! Called Shinrin-Yoku where it originated in Japan, also called "Forest Bathing", it is the wellness practice of being in the present moment and opening up our senses. This type of slow walking 'sauntering', deep breathing, present-centered awareness, and observation in nature is shown to reduce stress, boost our moods, and strengthen our immune systems. Donations accepted if you are able.
