Forest Therapy @ Lower Howard's Creek Nature and Heritage Preserve
Date and Time-
Lyle Van Outer, a certified Forest Therapy Guide through the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy, will lead a minimally strenuous activity during Lexington's 6th Annual Tree Week. Forest Therapy, more commonly known as Forest Bathing, is an immersive connection to nature through the senses and a slowing down of the mental pace we experience in modern society. It isn’t a hike or a naturalist plant identification. It is an invitation to slow way down and be present in nature, to find or rediscover the Kinship we share with all being. Physical effects include reduced blood pressure and cortisol levels for an overall reduced level of anxiety and depression, and increased immunity.
