Cancer Survival Series: Nature is Healing!
Join Us Every Saturday March 30 – April 27
10:00 am-12:00 pm
Saturday, March 30:
Animal Tracking: Beyond the Prints
The most powerful moments in nature come from being able to translate the world around us and develop an understanding of the language of the forest. Compelling research suggests there are physiological and neurological benefits when we open our senses to instincts and parts of the brain we don’t use in this modern lifestyle through interaction with natural environments. We’ll learn from an experienced tracker about animal signs and sounds of the surrounding environment, and how we can tune into its story.
Join Live By Living and OSMP to experience the benefits of time outdoors. In this series we’ll explore how getting outside and in nature can help with reducing pain, social isolation, and many of the effects of surviving cancer. This program is geared towards anyone impacted by cancer. Sign up for one or all of these great opportunities to help you heal with deepening a connection to the natural world.
As always, Live By Living events are open to all cancer survivors and their caregivers. Regardless of whether you are currently in or out of treatment, we’d love to have you join us. If you’re uncertain whether you are physically up for a hike, please call us at 303-808-2339, and we can help you decide.
