Welcome the coming of fall with your School of Public Health Alumni Chapter (SPHAC) at an event entitled, “Rediscovering nature: A guided forest therapy walk.”
SPHAC is pleased to host a three-hour guided forest therapy walk for all alumni and a guest on Saturday, October 5 in Edmonton’s river valley. The walk will be facilitated by Mary Jane Yates (MSc ’00) who has also recently completed the requirements to be a certified guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy.
Inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku (translated as ‘forest bathing’), nature and therapy walks are designed to encourage you to slow down, focus on your senses and experience the healing properties of forests and other natural areas.
Join us for this exciting opportunity to reconnect with nature and fellow alumni, learn about this holistic practice and its benefits, and celebrate the coming fall.
