Forest Bathing with A Greener Mind [CANCELED]
June 25, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
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.
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
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.

About LandBack Tax
From 2022 onward, Fox Haven will donate $2 from each event ticket to the Kikeokan Foundation to pay LandBack tax, acknowledging our access to stolen Indigenous land. The Kikeokan Foundation is an Indigenous-led initiative working to restore ancestral land and sovereignty to the Piscataway and other Indigenous communities of the Chesapeake.
