oin us for a social distant outdoor event. Please meet in the parking lot at D Acres at 8:15am and be prepared for a group excursion. 6 foot distance and masks required.
Dr. MaryAnn McGarry, Endowed Abbott Professor of Environmental Studies in the Environment Science and Policy Program at Plymouth State University, teaches about Shinrin-Yoku (forest bathing). She has led walks in Hokkaido, Japan; Sadhana Forest, India; the White Mountain National Forest; and Langdon Woods in Plymouth, NH in all seasons. Arrive by 8:15, bring bug spray and a hat, and wear comfortable walking shoes. The introduction; easy, short walk (we won’t be climbing any mountains); and follow-up sharing session will last no more than 45 minutes. All ages are encouraged to attend; but please note, most of the time, participants will be using their senses to make observations in the quietude of their own space. McGarry will share a template for recording notes about your experience and to use in future sessions; you are encouraged to engage in the activity as often as possible, ideally once a week, for your health and happiness. McGarry will provide a list of annotated, recommended resources and readings. Space is limited to no more than 10, please register in advance by contacting D Acres. If there is sufficient interest, a subsequent session can be scheduled. Donations of $10 are encouraged to benefit D’Acres’ which has been shut down during the spring, due to Covid.
