Description:
This 2-hour experience, held entirely outdoors, is an opportunity to tune into the forests of southern Maine while exploring with the curiosity that came naturally during childhood. Your sense of comfort and familiarity with the environment will be fostered in hopes of creating a deeper connection with yourself. Plan to wander and wonder with guidance from Jack Flanagan and Hughes Kraft. Jack is a Maine Naturalist and psychotherapist with a long and deep love of the outdoors. Hughes is a Certified Nature Therapy Guide, writer, and psychotherapist in private practice.

Simple mindfulness practices will be shared to help us slow down and naturalist tools will be available to help with close observation and naming what we find.

We suggest combining Connect with Nature with the Forest Bathing walk to increase your experience with the natural world. The fee for both is $35.
