Forest Bathing: Writing in Nature

June 29 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

“Writing in Nature”  RETREAT at Transfiguration Preserve. This month we will write, and spend more time in the wild. Pack your lunch and bring a mat or blanket/towel for our mid-day break.

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.

Many have asked if Mattie would consider “Writing in Nature”! So, here it is!

“This event begins a new series I’ll be offering for those who would like to begin a Nature Journal, or simply write from their experiences in relationship with nature. We will begin with mindfulness meditation and some “forest bathing” with “texture gathering.”- Mattie Decker
