October Sunset Nature Immersion Walk

Tue. Oct 27, 2020

Nature Immersion is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to “forest bathing”. Since the 1980’s scientists in Japan started experimenting with the effect spending time in a natural environment has on the physical body. They discovered and documented amazing health benefits from lowered blood pressure and pulse rate, to decreased levels of the stress hormone Cortisol, and an increase in the amount of Natural Killer cells in the body. Since that time Nature and Forest Therapy has also been shown to boost the immune system, aid in relaxation, increase creativity, and problem solving.

A Nature Immersion Experience helps you to focus on the present moment using all of your senses. As your Nature Immersion Guide I open the door for you to create your own personal connection to the More than Human World. Using prompts called Invitations, we will explore the natural world around us on a slow paced, mindful journey. Invitations facilitate deep relaxation and stress reduction by unplugging from the material world, letting go of mind chatter, and recharging our energies. We will also gather together in Council Circles (wearing masks), to share our experiences with one another.

The group will meet in front of the HPEC building at 2698 Bluestem Willow Dr. in Loveland, CO 80538.

Please bring water, something to sit on, (like a jacket or camp chair), insect repellant, an open mind, and a desire to relax.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED!
