Forest Bathing with Sock Gee Gan – All ages
July 21, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Discover a practice that brings people closer with nature and supports healing and wellness through natural environments. Forest therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to “forest bathing.” Experience the benefits of slow-paced wandering in nature with a trained forest therapy guide on this guided journey.
We will begin with a guided visit of the exhibition Peter Powning: A Retrospective before continuing our journey across the street in Gage Park. Rest and rejuvenate through mindful and sensory awareness and deepen your relationship with nature.
Bring comfortable clothing and shoes. This event is rain or shine unless severe weather is in the forecast. We will provide you a square mat to sit on or you can bring a blanket of your own. It is highly recommended to bring a backpack for your possessions to keep your hands free. Tea will be offered at the end of the program. Please bring a reusable cup.
