Nature Mindfulness Drop-in: Waverly Park

  • Waverly Park Playground 1181 Scollard Drive Peterborough, ON, K9H 0A7 Canada (map)

New in our community this summer! These short and sweet drop-in sessions are designed to be accessible - offered in local neighbourhood parks for a low fee*.

Nature Mindfulness Drop-ins are based loosely on the ideas of Forest Therapy, also known as 'forest bathing' or 'shinrin-yoku'. Each session will be a little different from the next. But generally, we will move slowly and mindfully, taking time to breathe, notice our surroundings, and drop in to our senses. I will include an 'invitation' or two for simple nature connection activities along the way.


COST: $10 (cash or e-transfer)

*No one to be turned away for lack of funds - contact me for more info.
