Treat yourself to a walk in the woods.
 
The event is free. Participants of all mobility levels are welcome and will be accommodated during this slow stroll.
 
The bustle of our fast-paced lives often creates a mental state that is reflected in our troubled landscapes: stressed, fragmented, disconnected, over-managed. We are drawn to peaceful places where healing is found, where we can become more whole, psychologically, physically and spiritually. Landscapes also seek wholeness through ecological resiliency and a heartfelt dance of interdependent relationship with visitors. Mutual wholeness can be created together.
 
To celebrate National Trails Day, we invite you to walk through the woods in a slow, relaxed way that helps still your mind, enjoy the present moment, recharge and reduce stress. Playful, exploratory activities will deepen your relationship with nature to enhance personal wellness while simultaneously benefiting the health of the woodlands.
 
WHAT TO BRING
Please plan to stroll a short distance outdoors on relatively level ground. Dress appropriately for the weather and for sitting in the outdoors. Small sitting mats will be provided. Please bring items for your comfort: water bottle, insect repellent, hat, long pants, walking stick, full-length mat or portable chair. If desired, bring materials for sketching or writing. Walking without electronic devices is recommended.
