*RESCHEDULED* Fall Forest Bathing with A Greener Mind

October 30, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This event is rescheduled to November 19th from 6:30-8:30 pm due to rain.

In this 2 1/2 hour session, Association of Nature and Forest Therapy trained guide and A Greener Mind founder, Josh Schwartz, will guide you through sensory invitations to help you slow down, awaken your senses, and reconnect with nature.

About A Greener Mind

A Greener Mind was founded to help people discover the restorative power of nature therapy. More and more our daily lives are full of noise, screens, and frenetic energy without any ability to pause or any outlet to the natural outdoors.

A Greener Mind offers a solution to engage with the natural world through forest bathing – intentional walks guided to connect to the natural world through the senses. The mission for each individual is simple:

-to hold the space you need to quieten your overworked mind;

-to deepen your connection to nature;

-to improve your overall well-being.

Forest Bathing

This method is inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, which has proven mental and physical health benefits. To learn more about Forest Bathing, please visit www.agreenermind.com

Refund Policy

·   All class ticket sales are considered a donation to Fox Haven and help us to fulfill our mission. Full refunds (minus a 20% processing fee) will be given to any participant canceling at least 30 days prior to the scheduled class date. Due to the nature of full series commitments, no refunds will be processed once the series has started.

·   Enrollment cannot be transferred to another class. If you are within the 30-day cancellation period, it is best to request a refund and sign up for the desired replacement.

About LandBack Tax

Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.

 The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people. To learn more or pay land tax, visit: www.piscatawayindians.com/projects

Weather Policy

In the event that inclement weather is predicted ahead of an event, you will receive 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or rescheduling. Otherwise, the event is assumed to be rain or shine. An alternative location may be provided if shelter is needed. We do not offer refunds for postponed events or no-shows. However, if Fox Haven cancels, a full refund will be issued.
