SATURDAY

Meditation in Nature, 9:30 a.m. in Georgetown

In Japan, the practice of meditating in nature to lower stress, improve memory and feel a stronger sense of place is called Shinrin-yoku, “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing.” The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust invites the public to practice meditating in nature and mindfully take in the atmosphere at Morse Pond Preserve. This free meditative walk will be led by clinical psychologist Bobby Carnicella, who will offer guidelines on how to walk in nature mindfully. The walk will be mostly silent, with occasional reminders to refocus attention. Carnicella is a clinical psychologist who works at Sandcastle Clinical and Educational Services in Lewiston. Participants are encouraged to wear snowshoes. To register, email [email protected] or call 442-8400. To get to Morse Pond Preserve from Route 1, take Route 127 south for 10 miles, turn right on Seguinland Road and drive 1.1 miles to the preserve. The entrance is on the right.
