Forest Therapy

Finding Spirituality in Our Woods Pat Homer, Certified Forest Therapist Our guest speaker leads spiritual forest walks in Aiken’s Hitchcock Woods, Statesboro, GA and other SE locations. She invites us to renew our spirits, restore our peace, and return to ourselves by practicing what Japanese traditions call “forest bathing.” She asks us to meditate on the following quote in preparation for this week’s worship service:

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
