Forest meditation walking (also called Forest Bathing) became a national program in Japan in 1982 and since then, numerous of studies have been supported the link of well-being with nature and forests.
Forest bathing involves slowly walking through a forest, taking in the atmosphere through all senses, and enjoying the benefits that come with it! Spending time in a forest can reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and anger.
On Thursday, November 7th, the TCSA, in collaboration with Trent Spiritual Affairs, has organized a forest meditation walk to encourage students to spend more time outdoors as a way to promote positive self-care.
Hosted by Kristina Domsic, certified Forest Therapy Guide. More about Kristina can be found on her website: https://www.rootedheart.ca
