About this event

Nature, Neuroscience, and Resiliency: Bringing Forest Bathing to Urban Parks

Funded by a TD Park People Grant

This is the third in a series of three innovative and accessible nature-connection programs. This free, public program is specifically designed to be accessible to people who live with physical disabilities.

Engaging in a regular practice of nature mindfulness and shinrin-yoku/ forest bathing can result in beneficial and long-lasting changes to the brain. We will explore the neuroscience of nature connection during an online 2.5 hr program using zoom, with participants being guided in enjoyable and relaxing nature-connection practices. Afterward, participants will be encouraged to use these practices onsite at the Beaver Lake Trail (or an alternative greenspace/park that is more accessible or covid-safe to access).

• Do you find that spending time in nature, or gazing upon nature images, brings you a sense of calm?

• Would you like to understand the science behind the practice of shinrin-yoku/forest bathing, a wellness practice used by 75% of the Japanese Population?

• Are you seeking new ways to experience stress reduction and wellness?

Please join Kari Krogh and her EcoWisdom team in exploring nature-based mindfulness practices using nature images, nature videos, and direct contact with nature in an environment of your choice (indoors or outdoors). Kari is a Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide who lives with a disability.

This project arose from a collaborative partnership between Individualized Funding Resource Centre (IFRC), Technology for Living (TFL), and EcoWisdom Forest Preserve. Together we have established "Accessible Nature Wellness Programs" as a Park Group. We thank TD Parks People Grant, Park People, and TD Ready Commitment for making this program possible.

Space is limited.
