Fall Forest Bathing - A Mindful Walk in the Beauty of Fall

Hartman Reserve Nature Center, Black Hawk County

Sunday, October 1, 2023

Forest bathing is a slow-paced, therapeutic, guided walk that promotes wellness through a series of gentle, sensory-opening invitations. This practice helps participants to slow down, be in the moment, address circling thoughts, and heighten their senses. 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. Most walks don’t travel far and are on a relatively flat trail to accommodate those with mobility issues. Please call Connie Svoboda, Certified Forest Therapy Guide at Hartman Reserve with any questions or concerns, 319-277-2187.

$25.00 per person for this 3-hour forest bathing event. Limit 15 people.

Registration deadline is Thursday, September 28 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: Private walks are available at any time for families, organizations, or groups. Call Connie at 319-277-2187 to schedule a private walk.
