Autumn Equinox Forest Therapy Walk

Set amidst a magnificent forest backdrop, participants are guided through a series of mindful and immersive activities designed to enhance their well-being. Led by Forest Therapy Guide Robert Sarnoski (Mind Body Simple, LLC), this event incorporates various elements such as sensory experiences, meditation, and gentle movement in order to create a deep sense of relaxation and harmony with the natural world. The Autumn equinox serves as a symbolic reminder of balance between light and darkness, and during this event, participants are encouraged to reflect on their own personal equilibrium and intentions for the upcoming season. By engaging all the senses in this purposeful manner, attendees can expect to leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and more connected to both themselves and the environment around them.


*Registration is required*

Meet-up for the walk will be at McConnell Hall, next to the Nolde Mansion. Please dress accordingly for the weather. Long pants and close toe shoes are also recommended. Feel free to bring anything that will make your walk more comfortable such as a walking stick, water bottle and a sense of curiosity.


**Due to the increasing popularity of our programming and the growing number of people on the waitlist for programs, we require a 24-hour cancellation notice for all programs. This will allow us time to reach out to other participants/families on the wait list and allow them to fill your spot. Individuals who repeatedly do not cancel before the program and who repeatedly do not show up to the program will be prohibited from signing up for future programs.**
