MAY 26: CRCA Forest Therapy Walk Public Session

The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) is continuing its innovative and immersive Forest Therapy Walks program, as a way of encouraging area residents to reconnect with nature in a deeper, more meaningful way.
The practice of Forest Therapy was recently founded through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides, based in California. The founders of this mindful, healing and connective practice were inspired by the Japanese practice of “Shinrin-yoku” which translates as “forest bathing.” Research has determined that spending time in nature not only strengthens the human immune response and reduces stress, but also makes us more creative, mindful, and content in our lives. It may also inspire an environmental ethic that leads to positive changes in our behaviour, and a decreasing personal impact.
The next public session will take place on from 1 p.m. to 3:30 a.m., at the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area. The cost is $20 per person, which includes the gate fee. Register for this walk at www.crca.ca/forest-therapy-walks.
Our Forest Therapy Walks will be guided by the CRCA’s Senior Conservation Educator, Stana Luxford Oddie who is accredited by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs. Luxford Oddie has more than two decades of experience connecting people of all ages to nature.
A Forest Therapy Walk is a slow and mindful experience that combines walking, sitting, standing or laying down. Everything is an invitation, so participants are invited to do what feels most comfortable to the. An entire Forest Therapy Walk experience will be no longer than one kilometre, and can last between two to three hours depending on the requirements and desires of the participants.
Everyone can benefit from Forest Therapy Walks such as, but not limited to, people recovering from illness, youth, active military personnel, veterans, people recovering from loss, students, professionals, parents, people looking to better their mental health, first responders and seniors – anyone who is looking to de-stress, slow down, heal and connect with nature.
Private, one-on-one Forest Walks are also available. You can fill out a special booking form that will request information about any special needs or requests, and sign up a personalized walk with our guide.
