The retreat runs from October 12th to 15th. Participants will walk away from the experience with new tools and techniques to promote inner peace and well-being that are easily accessible and integrated into their everyday lives.
What you will you take home with you:
Research in the developing field of eco-psychology has shown that time in nature helps alleviate many unfavorable symptoms of mental disorders including PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Evidence shows getting outside reduces blood pressure, regulates and reduces stress hormone levels, lowers nervous system arousal, enhances immune system function, increases self-esteem, and boosts mood. In a recent study, psychiatric unit researchers found that being in nature reduces feelings of isolation, promotes feelings of calm, and lifts mood among patients studied.
Financial aid will be available to participants who express an interest.
