Center for Grief & Loss Events

 

Nature Immersion for Healing - *Postponed to October 28th

 

Please join us for an outdoor nature immersion experience to help ease the pain of grief and loss.  This 2 hour session, led by certified yoga instructor Dallas Rising, is designed to help you tune into your senses. Enjoy both guided and silent portions to help you connect with nature as part of your healing from grief, trauma, or loss.

 

Inspired by Japanese practice shinrin-yoku (a.k.a forest bathing or forest therapy), you will take part in a multi-sensory session. The instructor will encourage you to experience the sounds of rustling branches, the feeling of gentle winds, and the sights of summer sunshine. Surrounded by natural beauty, you will take time to notice the details and find comfort in the simple restorative power of nature. Studies have shown immersion in the outdoors is a proven way to reduce stress hormone production, boost the immune system, and lower blood pressure; all of which help in your healing process.
