Intro to Nature Therapy: Connecting with Nature to Support Health and Well-Being

October 19, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

with Philip Hosmer of Nature Worx

Learn simple, evidence-based ways to connect with nature to enhance your mood, reduce stress and anxiety and lower blood pressure and heart rate. Shift from doing mode to being mode, from thinking mode to sensing mode, seeing nature as your ally in this process. You don’t need to travel to a park to experience deep nature connection. Nature is all around us all the time, and we are part of nature. Even sitting by a window, or on your porch or in your backyard, you can get in touch with nature and yourself, giving your mind a break from the stresses and challenges of life.
