Meditation & Forest Bathing Walk at Millvale Park

May is Mental Health Awareness Month #4Mind4Body (http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/may ) There is growing evidence to suggest that exposure to natural environments can be associated with mental health benefits. In our efforts to promote the link between nature and mental health 3 Rivers Outdoor Co. and Friends of the Riverfront have partnered with Lolo Schaffer a local meditation guide to lead a walking meditation for us. This 1.5 hour group class will include a led introduction to forest bathing along the Three Rivers Heritage trail departing from the River Front Park in Millvale at 7pm and return the park pavilion and grassy area for a seated meditation portion. Class is donation based, give what you can.

Through intense collaboration with community partners, government officials, philanthropic supporters, and diverse volunteer base, FOR works to transform Pittsburgh’s riverfront into a healthy ecosystem for all to enjoy.
