Forest Bathing: Nature and Forest Therapy

September 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Norman Wilder Forest.

Join us for a session of forest bathing at Transfiguration Preserve. This walk will provide time to enjoy a 3 hour experience in the forest as we discover what the changing season invites us to explore.

Mattie is a certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide. She is also a Zen practitioner, an Episcopal oblate, and a retired education professor, and she is certified in wilderness first aid. This event is one of our monthly forest bathing walks. Forest bathing is a practice from Japan that has been gaining attention in the West. Forest bathing is not about getting exercise. It’s not about hiking to get somewhere. It’s about being present in the forest, taking it in. It’s about creating relationships between humans and the more-than-human world.

Space is limited to 12 participants. Registration is required by RSVP below. RSVP will close at 12:00 p.m. on September 21st. 

*Transfiguration Preserve is private property and guests are only allowed on the property by invitation (a planned event or scheduled group).  Thank you.

Donations are not required and the amount of your gift is entirely up to you. A donation of $30 is suggested for forest bathing walks, for those who are able. Donations of $35 or more will include Conserving Carolina membership benefits.
