Cylburn Arboretum, 4915 Greenspring Ave, Baltimore, MD 21209, USA
About the event
Humans have evolved within nature, mirroring how animals react to the changes of the seasons, taking cues from plants about their uses and dangers, making decisions to migrate or settle when conditions warranted it. Today we have more means of connecting and learning than ever before, but are more disconnected from the natural world than we ever have been. Saunter with us and see nature through the eyes of our ancestors, as a mirror of our inner nature, a mentor in how to live healthy and well, and model for how we want to grow! We will meet in front of the Visitors Center. Our walk will begin at 10AM sharp so if you're going to arrive late please contact Phil at 443-686-2087 Our saunter will take about an hour, with time on either end to do group introductions and a reflection. On our walk your guides will invite you to pause and explore the "more than human world" in a variety of ways. We blend elements of mindfulness, meditation, 5 senses exploration, art, and play to connect to nature for body, mind and spirit health benefits! We will be walking the trails around Cylburn Arboretum, which include hills, and uneven terrain. Please be sure you are physically able to participate and are wearing athletic shoes, dressed appropriately for the weather, have applied sunscreen and bug spray as preferred, and have a water bottle.
