In collaboration with certified Forest Therapy Guides, the Highlands Center is now offering Forest Bathing classes and series. In these classes, guides will lead groups on a gentle walk through the woods, providing instructions—referred to as “invitations”—for sensory opening activities along the way.
Overcome feelings of isolation and come alive with spring in this 1.5 hour Virtual Forest Bathing/Nature Immersion Experience! Jackie Kuang, Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT) trained and certified Forest Therapy Guide, will be guiding from the Ponderosa Pine Forests of Prescott or the Red Rock Canyons of Sedona, Arizona.
Join her via her Zoom account from your room with a view, garden, neighborhood park, or any nature spot you choose and have access to. During the walk, she will usually have her video on so you get to experience sights that may be new to you. She’ll also have her audio on most of the time and if you choose to, you’re welcome to connect to bird songs, whispering breeze, babbling brooks and/or other nature sounds.
There are many dates in April and May listed for you to participate in on her website, but by registering for these dates you are supporting the Highlands Center as well.
Come connect with our inner and outer nature through sensory-opening invitations and share in a special experience with a global community of nature lovers.
When: 2 pm – 3:30 pm Wednesdays April 22, April 29th, May 6th and May 13th
Cost: $15 per person
