**CANCELED** Forest Therapy Workshop with Lora Laffan – OCTOBER 1

October 1st, 2022: 9:00 am - 11:00 am





Registered Maine Guide Lora Laffan will lead an outdoor forest therapy workshop at Merryspring Nature Center on Saturday, September 24 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.


Forest therapy is a practice that began with the Japanese tradition of shinrin-yoku, meaning “forest bathing.” In this outdoor workshop, Lora Laffan will encourage the audience to slow down and experience a series of guided, gentle invitations to open the senses, explore presence, and invite interactions with the natural world. The walk will conclude with a tea ceremony made from locally foraged plants.


Laffan is a Forest Therapy Guide, RN, Registered Maine Guide, yoga teacher, and entrepreneur based in midcoast Maine.


This program is part of the Weekend Workshop series at Merryspring, sponsored by Camden National Bank. All guests should wear sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing, and be prepared to walk on uneven terrain for up to 2 hours.


Space is limited for this program, with preregistration required. The cost of this workshop is $15, with a discounted rate of $10 for Merryspring members. To sign up, please contact Merryspring at 207-236-2239 or info@merryspring.org.
