Loss and resilience walk

Sugarloaf State Park

Thursday November 21st 2019 - 10:00am to

10 a.m.-12:15 p.m.

This is a gentle forest therapy walk designed to help those recovering from the traumatic impact of our natural disasters. A sensory immersion experience, inspired by the Japanese practice, Shinrin-yoku, the walk has the potential to 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 their senses of smell, sound, and sight with sharing circles to enhance the connection to nature and each other.

These free events are sponsored by Healthcare Foundation of North Sonoma County with parking fees generously waived, and event assistance provided by Sonoma Ecology Center and Team Sugarloaf.

Sugarloaf State Park is located at 2605 Adobe Canyon Road in Kenwood. For more information, visit
