  • Forest Therapy Walk on Undercliff-Nelsonville Trail loop in Cold Spring
    9:00 AM-12:00 PM
    September 1, 2018

    The loop we will be using begins and ends on Secor Street in Cold Spring, a block off of Route 301. For those who are familiar with the trail system, we will be starting on the Undercliff Trail and then looping back on the Nelsonville Trail.

    This loop is considered an easy trail and would take around 35-40 minutes to walk as a non-stop hike. The trail is relatively even and well maintained with some minor inclines, but some spots have loose rocks so may not be suitable for those with mobility challenges or balance concerns.

    We will be walking the loop slowly with several stops for sharing and forest therapy work.

    Cost is $25. If you are not able to afford the fee please come and pay what you can. If you can afford it, the fee helps support this service and allows me to be flexible with those who need the help.

    I estimate the event will take 2.5 hours.

    Parking and the Trail start is just past the intersection of Pearl and Secor Streets in Cold Spring near the Masonic Lodge. This location is easily walkable or a short taxi from the train station.

  • Informal meditation workshop/chat at a Buddhist Monastery
    9:00 AM-10:00 AM
    September 12, 2018

    So I have been trying to start many of my mornings meditating at my local Buddhist monastery where I often do my Forest Therapy sessions and I thought I would open it up to see if anyone would like to meet up and chat a bit about meditation, share techniques/tips, and eventually spend some personal time meditating in one of the temples.

    If you are new to meditation or have problems doing it, this would be a great opportunity to discuss and get some tips/ideas so beginners encouraged to come!

    We can sit in a covered gazebo sipping some tea as we chat.

    The property opens at 9 so if you come early please stay in the parking area and I will be there to meet you. Please arrive 5 minutes early since we will be leaving the parking lot at 9:10.

    All participants must sign a simple liability waiver at the start of the event to allow us peace of mind in offering events to the public. (I know we are not “walking” much but this is a good practice.)

    Cost: Free (donations welcome but not solicited)

  • Hike with some Forest Therapy at Old Mine Railroad Trail
    10:00 AM-1:00 PM
    September 16, 2018

    FREE EVENT

    This is a relatively easy 2.5 mile trail loop as long as you are comfortable hiking. Minor rocky bits, etc. If you are not used to hiking you may be sore the next day.

    We’ll do a little bit of forest therapy during the hike for those who would like to get an idea of how that works, but this is mostly just a friendly hike and a chance to meet the group organizer and some members. John will be happy to answer questions related to Forest Therapy.

    We’ll end with some tea and snacks by the reservoir like we would during forest therapy sessions. Feel free to bring something along to share.

    WHERE: Meet at the parking lot at the intersection of Dennytown Rd & Sunken Mine Rd. I believe that is technically Putnam Valley if you need that for GPS.

    Pack water and usual supplies: sunscreen, bug repellant, decent shoes, snack.

    Cost: Free (donations welcome but not solicited)
