THE MAGIC OF NATURE: FOREST BATH & SOUND BATH
Get outside, relax, and enjoy a vast array of health benefits through immersing yourself in the forests of Blue Mountain Park in Peekskill, NY!
Enjoy a forest bathing walk led by Certified Forest Therapy Guide Fru Molnar, and finish with a deeply relaxing and healing sound bath meditation led by Somatic Practitioner Dayna Gralla.
We’ll explore the forest and connect with nature through a slow-paced, easeful sensory exploration based on the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku (“forest bathing”). Decades of studies have discovered a wide range of health benefits associated with this practice, including stress relief, better sleep, lowered blood pressure and inflammation, and improved immunity.
When we intentionally slow ourselves down and awaken our senses, we can find a sense of connection with parts of ourselves and the natural world that we may not have even noticed we were missing.
Sound Healing is an ancient meditative and restorative health practice that uses sound and vibration to guide you into the body, calming the nervous system and recalibrating the energetic field to restore wholistic health and wellbeing. When vibroacoustics travel through the body, they activate circulation, energy flow, and rejuvenation. The frequency of each sound synchronizes with our brainwaves making it easier to achieve deep states of relaxation, inviting our cells to synchronize with their natural vibratory frequencies.
With the use of various instruments: Crystal + Tibetan Singing Bowls, Drums, Tuning forks, Rattles etc., listeners will journey into a deeply meditative and relaxed state of being where the only expectation is to be and receive. This state of being is natural and familiar to the body, even though it may feel foreign to the mind. It is our human right to experience relaxation, as it is the gateway to pleasure and joy. Permission to connect to your roots + cultivate calm. As we meet beneath the trees, lay supported by Mother Earth, we will release, restore and rejoice.
All are welcome. No special skills or equipment required. We’ll cover under 1 mile in distance total, taking plenty of seated breaks along the way for our invitations. Consider this a mini-retreat for the mind, body, and soul.
