!!! seems it only displays well the 2nd time? ugh.

Treat yourself to a rejuvenating autumn forest bathing walk guided by Regan Stacey, a certified forest therapy guide. She will invite participants to immerse the senses in the wonder of the laurels, mature forest, and rock outcroppings of Young Preserve. Experience the soothing sounds of swishing leaves, the smell of autumn earth, and the changing colors of the season. Most of the trail is easy to moderate.

The walk will conclude with a ceremonial tea for the land where we honor Mother Earth and our time together.

The group is limited to 6 participants.  Social distancing guidelines will be followed. Please wear a mask to the parking lot meet-up.

 Folding stools are available for your use or bring along your own stool or sit upon (towel, cloth or mat) for our sitting sessions. You may wish to bring along some water. There are no restrooms at the preserve.

The Lyme Land Trust is partnering with Regan Stacey to offer this walk at a discounted price of $25 non-members, and $20 for members of the LLT. For LLT member discount, please enter code LLTMEMBER at checkout. To become an LLT member.

Registration required. To register.

Heavy rain cancels. If canceled, an email will go out 2 hours prior to the walk.

Regan Stacy is the founder of Awaken the Forest Within, an organization that offers forest bathing walks. Forest bathing is a supportive practice that invites us to slow down, open our senses, and engage with nature and ourselves as we take in the restorative health benefits of being in the forest. These benefits include lowered stress, blood pressure, and heart rate, increased creativity and focus, and a boost to our immune system. Leave calm and refreshed for the day ahead.
