The Healing Power of Nature
Jan 10 @ 7:00 pm

Is nature’s well-being inextricably linked to our own? How are we impacted when we  never experience natural environments?   Does our health improve when we feel the breeze, listen to birds, or lift our gaze to a sky streaked with cloud formations?  This talk presents an overview of research on nature’s healing impacts on physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being at all  stages of life. Patients recovering from surgery, for example, heal faster when their room looks out on a natural vista.  Mindful forest  walking, pioneered and practiced in Japan lowers stress hormones and heart rates.
