FULL: Summer Forest Bathing

Hartman Reserve Nature Center, Black Hawk County

Sunday, June 18, 2023

Awaken your senses and open yourself to healing through Forest Bathing, led by Connie Svoboda, Certified Forest Therapy Guide. Forest bathing is a slow-paced, therapeutic, guided walk that promotes wellness through a series of gentle, sensory-opening invitations. It’s a time for individual, quiet reflection. Studies have shown a wide array of health benefits to being in nature, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and to help stabilize mood and improve cognition. A growing number of health professionals are prescribing a walk in the woods to complement or even substitute for traditional medicine! 

$12.50 per person--an anonymous benefactor is paying half your attendance fee for this particular forest bathing event. Limit 10 people.

Registration deadline is June 16 at noon, after which time an email will be sent to forest bathing participants with instructions specific to the event. Contact Connie at 319-277-2187 with any questions. Forest bathing is beneficial for all ages; however, this particular forest bathing session is for ages 18+.

Please note: if there is not enough room for your family or group, call Connie and schedule a private walk.

Hartman Refund Policy: Refunds will only be given in the case of a documented medical emergency or funeral for programs more than $10. If program cost is under $10, a program voucher will be offered for a future program. If a program is cancelled due to weather or other unforeseen reasons, then a similar program will be offered in its place.
