Forest Bathing With Dr. Mattie Decker
June 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
As we near the Summer Solstice on Sunday, June 20th, this walk will provide time to enjoy a 2 1/2 hour experience in the lush green of the forest as we discover what this dynamic 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.
To keep everyone safe, these walks are limited to 8 participants. Registration is required.
A donation of $30 is suggested for forest bathing walks, for those who are able. Donations are not required and the amount of your gift is entirely up to you. Donations of $35 or more will include Conserving Carolina membership benefits.
