Explore the park and slow down, engage your senses to enjoy the nature of the park, and deepen your appreciation for this special slice of Cambridge. We'll enjoy simple warm-up movements, natural history of the area, guided breathing and centering awareness, mindful walking with sensory activities, and finding our nature meditation/sit spot.
All are welcome to experience our innate connection to nature with calmness, curiosity and care. Come as you are and just be yourself. You will be supported as you connect to nature in your own way. As Shinrin Yoku (‘forest bathing') and similar practices around the world are reminding us, nurturing our inherent relationship with nature is good for us, body and soul.
