Kent Park, 2048 U.S. 6, Oxford, IA, 52322, United States.

Treat yourself to a walk in nature.

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.

We invite you to walk through the prairie 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 land.
