Ornitherapy Workshop 5/3 & 6/21, 2022:
Watching birds: not only fun, but good for you! Registration Required - Zoom link sent closer to day of group and not at the time of registration. Learn why getting your daily dose of Ornitherapy is just what the doctor ordered…. Ornitherapy is a mindful approach to the observation of birds, benefits our mind, body, and spirit. We’re pushed and pulled in many directions, no matter our age. If we allow birds and nature to slow us down, we are practicing a form of “selfcare”. Research shows that exposure to nature actively reduces stress, depression, and anxiety, while helping build a stronger heart and immune system. Birds can be a gateway into deeper experiences with nature, magnifying these benefits. Through observation, we can learn not only about birds, but gain insight into our own lives while exploring our connection to the world around us. In this program, we’ll delve into our connections to birds, how to practice Ornitherapy for optimal benefits, the science of how this benefits our health, and learn about the latest research in the power of nature for overall wellbeing. Come learn how watching birds can bring you more than just enjoyment. Presenter: Holly Merker, professional birding instructor and guide for the National Audobon Society and other state and national conservation organizations.
