Forest Bathing in the Blue Hills
July 24, 9:00 am – 10:30 am
As a special thank you to our members, Friends of the Blue Hills members are invited to explore the Blue Hills with a guided nature immersion called Forest Bathing. Dr. Susan Abookire, a trained guide, will lead you on a slow-paced experience that promotes wellness through gentle sensory-opening invitations that welcome us to notice our natural surroundings and come into partnership with nature. These therapeutic experiences, according to Dr. Abookire, can deepen our connection with the natural world, opening us to the healing medicine of the forest.
Dr. Abookire is an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School, and a senior executive with 20 years’ experience leading healthcare organizations. As a former aviation engineer with a passion for excellence in systems design, she teaches and designs healthcare delivery systems that work for both patients and providers. Also a Certified Forest Therapy guide, Dr. Abookire guides Forest Therapy for health and healing, and leads programs that incorporate Forest Therapy to promote wellbeing and promote systems design, teamwork, and leadership.
