The Bucks County Audubon Society, 2877 Creamery Road, Solebury, hosts a forest bathing guided walk 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 25, with Sharon Lohse, a forest guide trained at the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs.
Forest therapy is a gentle practice that involves moving very slowly and mindfully through nature, soaking it in with all of our senses. It is a relaxing experience that connects people to natural environments through sensory-based invitations.
It is not hiking in the traditional sense. An entire walk is typically two to two and a half hours in duration and often covers no more than a quarter-mile distance. In that short distance, most people experience contact with nature in a much deeper way that they ever have prior to the walk.
Participants will do a series of relaxing and engaging activities to engage senses, deepen nature connection, hone intuition, and connect with the natural world around them.
Admission is $30/per person. Register online at BCAS.org
