About the event
Join us for a fun, relaxing hike to kick off the Summer Solstice in the beautiful North Cheyenne Canyon Park. The 7 bridges trail runs along North Cheyenne Creek and a lush forest- perfect for a morning of "Forest Bathing." The concept of forest bathing has its roots in early 1980s Japan as a form of medicinal nature therapy. We will gather and mindfully walk into the woods, put our feet in the river, and spend time exploring nature around us. When we calm the mind and come into the body this helps us release stress and reset our nervous system. Then, we will settle into a spot to do some breathwork and meditation. Celina will facilitate teaching how to connect and ground in nature and we will conclude the event with creating a nature mandala and lunch along the creek. You will need to bring your own lunch.
