Forest Bathing: A Virtual Journey through Integrative Imagery
with Terry Reed, RN, MS
Research shows that both imagery and forest bathing are recognized as an effective disease prevention strategy that reduces stress and supports the immune system. In this workshop, led by Forest Nature Therapy Imagery guide, Terry Reed, we will renew and deepen our relationship to the more than human world of nature. “The forest is the therapist, and the guide opens the doors.” The transformation comes as each participant responds with their own unique images, sensations and healing to imaginal invitations and responses to what they notice.
