Reduce stress and increase connection with the practice of forest therapy (aka forest bathing) at Ryerson Woods. Sarah Abu-Absi, Certified Forest Therapy Guide, will help us reconnect to nature and ourselves with gentle mindfulness practices. We will sit or lay on the ground for a guided sensory meditation, as well as wander slowly along a wooded path while we explore our relationship to the natural world. Dress for the weather and bring a towel, blanket or chair to sit or lay on. More info at www.thatforestfeeling.com.

Ryerson Woods has multiple parking lots, so follow signs for the Brushwood Center. You can park in that lot and look for us gathering in the lawn in front of the Brushwood Center (a white building).
