SoulCamp @Tryon Farm: Forest Bathing with Kathleen Aharoni
Time & Location
About the Event
Fall is here and nature is calling us to be amidst and rising through this season of transition. Join Kathy Bresler and Kathleen Aharoni in the colorful movement of this magical season . . . . soul-fully connected, joyously free and sensually present in the embrace of the sights, scents, colors, textures and sounds of nature flourishing in transition.
Our day at the enchanting Tryon Farm will include:
Luxuriant Forest Bathing. Part easy fitness, part mindfulness practice, this drench for your senses -- your innate intelligence -- will bring you into deep presence, deep noticing. Be nourished by the mutuality of our oneness with nature as she “showers” you with oils that literally boost your immune system and scents that calm. Open and playful invitations will guide you in expanding your relationship with nature and self. Free time to wander, walk the Monk-blessed Tryon labyrinth, continue your play in nature, commune (responsibly) with other participants, rest, read . . . . and a closing ceremony with a SoulCollage-esque twist, naturally!
Social distancing will be observed during all activities.
What you’ll need to bring:
A journal and writing/drawing implement (optional)
A foldable chair/stool, mat or blanket to sit on (optional)
Daypack to carry your items comfortably
