Awake in the Woods
“Awake in the Woods” is for those seeking peace and healing within the heart of mother nature. The practices of forest bathing (shinrin-yoku) are used in this gently guided experiential session, leading participants into deep mindful presence that often activates joy. Research has identified what we intuitively knew about slowing down, and mindfully spending time in the woods - that it contributes to our well-being and health. Healing benefits include stress reduction, improved mood, less fatigue, and increased immune functioning. Just as guided meditations can help participants to focus and deepen their experience, participating in “Awake in the Woods” guides participants through an experience in the woods that deepens their connection to nature, to themselves, to others, and to their spiritual path. By attuning to nature, participants naturally attune to their own divinity, their consciousness expands, and a deep sense of peace pervades body, mind and spirit. Sharing this experience in the presence of like-minded people increases the group’s sense of interdependence and the sacredness of all. **Please dress comfortably and wear appropriate shoes for walking. It is recommended to dress in layers. This group will meet rain or shine, unless there is a presence of lightning or other dangerous weather.
