March 15, 2022: The Power of Nature: Promoting Wellbeing During COVID-19 and Beyond
Two experienced nature therapy providers introduced the science and practice of mindful nature connection (otherwise referred to as forest bathing or shinrin-yoku) as an enjoyable way to promote health and wellbeing.
Dr. Krogh explained the neuroscience underlying virtual and onsite nature-connection programs that facilitate an embodied connection to the natural world. She also gave an overview of forest medicine research that documents measurable improvements in mood, immune function, cognitive clarity, social connection, and creativity.

Paul Gauthier, who is actively engaged in coordinating peer support networks at a community level, shared uplifting participant stories, including his own. He illustrated the various ways seniors, caregivers, and people living with mobility impairments have incorporated nature connection into their lives to foster personal resiliency and build a sense of community.
