‘Forest Bathing’ Among Giant Saguaros
Instructor: Dr. Lee Ann Woolery
Go to the Forest. Walk slowly. Breathe. Open all your senses.
This is the way of Shinrin-yoku or Forest Bathing, the healing power of simply being in the forest. Research has shown many health benefits of spending time in nature including: lower stress and reduce blood pressure, improve concentration, and increase energy. For centuries artists working in nature have expressed a sense of 'being one' with the natural world and experiencing the mental state of 'flow'.
Walk among ancient saguaros at Desert Discovery Center. Connect with the energy of the place through breath work and guided art-based mindfulness instruction taught by Dr. Lee Ann Woolery, ecologist and artist.
Engage your creativity - draw, paint and write your Forest Bathing experience. No art skills necessary. 1/2 day workshop ($65). Materials fee payable at first class ($5), or bring your own materials. A materials list, with workshop information and directions will be sent to you after you register.
