Join yoga instructor, Mindy Hill, for a Healing Forest Walk aimed at helping you heal by connecting with nature. The walk is free and open to individuals, 15 and older. Healing Forest Walks are for those experiencing grief. This particular class is an opportunity for our bereaved community to come together in a safe space to begin their healing journey. If you are seeking a group hike, but have not experienced the loss of a family member or loved one - please contact Mindy to see if there is an alternative option that may be right for you.
The group will walk in silence to allow walkers to listen to nature and be aware of their surroundings. Throughout the walk, attendees may undertake short tasks (forest meditations) that deepen their connection with the forests, undertaking the task to the best of their ability and inclination. Typically, the Healing Forest Walk will be 1-2 hours in duration. The group will walk slowly for 15 minutes and spend the next 20 minutes focusing on one of the human senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, or touch. Attendees can then continue the walk and stop whenever they find a place that calls out to them to observe and learn from nature.
