Walk Honoring Loss and Resilience

Sugarloaf State Park

Thursday September 19th 2019 - 10:00am to

Are you missing your sense of trust, safety, your home or beloved trees? This event is for anyone who still feels they are suffering negative effects from the recent fires or floods.

This will be a gentle “forest bathing” walk honoring loss and resilience. A sensory immersion experience, inspired by the Japanese practice Shinrin Yoku, it can help restore a sense of calm, safety and inner peace. Leader Susan Karle combines her expertise in grief and trauma with her passion for partnering with nature to provide optimal health.

Participants will experience a leisurely stroll of less than one mile on a well maintained trail, with a series of invitations to enliven your sense of smell, sound, and sight, and sharing circles to enhance the connection to nature and each other.

This free event is sponsored by Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County with parking fees generously waived and event assistance provided by Sonoma Ecology Center and Team Sugarloaf.
