Mindfulness Woods Walk Series with Jane Dobson at Minnewaska

Friday, June 28, 2024 09:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Begin your day with peace of mind when you join Jane Dobson with Mind the Forest guides for a meditative walk in the beautiful forest at Minnewaska. Join any one or all of the classes in this series as we use mindful nature connection to explore themes of embodiment, species loneliness and relationship, reciprocity and gratitude, and our relationship with time. Inspired by the Japanese practice of Forest Bathing, this guided experience is more of a saunter than a hike or exercise. We'll shift from our thinking minds, where we spend most of our time, to our direct experience of the present moment through our senses. This type of mindful nature connection brings a host of mental and physical health benefits to us, including reduced levels of our stress hormone cortisol, reduced anxiety and improved mood, focus and sleep. This free program is open to participants over the age of 16 years old, accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18 years old. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752. The meeting location will be provided on registration.
