Forest Therapy Walk:
The treasures of Spring are popping up all around us, so why not put your worries aside and try something new, something that leaves you feeling refreshed, relaxed and restored. During our peaceful, forest therapy walk at the beautiful Bowman’s Hill Wildlife Preserve in the heart of Bucks County, PA, we’ll enjoy the serenity of nature by connecting with the world that surrounds us in a way you never experienced before.
Forest Therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of “shinrin yoku” which translates to “forest bathing”. This is a gentle practice that involves moving very slowly and mindfully through nature, soaking it in with all our senses. Although our time outside in nature seems extensive, we walk no more than a quarter mile distance. So leave those hiking boots at home!
Our guide who earned a certificate in horticultural therapy will lead us through the ecologically diverse landscapes of the preserve helping us have the experience of being more present, awake, and peaceful amidst the quiet rhythm of nature.
Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits from these practices, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition
Lunch at Bowman's Tavern:
After our walk and special surprise, we will enjoy a delicious, included lunch at nearby Bowman’s Tavern.
Mindfulness in New Hope:
Practice your mindfulness while strolling in eclectic, downtown New Hope where you’ll have time to wander and take in the scenic sights for a leisurely afternoon.
