Day 48-ecotherapy in Edgewood

img_7379

Today’s first (for the ‘1 new thing a day for 100 days’new yrs res) fell into place seemlessly as I exited the highway en route to an in-home client and found myself with 25 minutes to spare.  Little did I know about the gem at my feet.  Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve was quaint and GREEN! with all the rain.  Mother Earth, my forever therapist 😉

And, yes 🌞, there is such a thing as Ecotherapy:

Connection with Earth: The Core of Ecotherapy

Connection with the Earth and its systems are at the core of ecotherapy. Many clinicians who practice ecotherapy believe that the Earth has a self-righting capacity which operates through complex systems of integrated balance, and that if people can harmonize with these systems, they may experience improved mental health. Personal well-being and planetary well-being, as proposed in many tenants of ecotherapy, are not separate from each other. People’s lives are therefore seen as part of a greater system of interaction.

This county park is known for its stunning spring wildflowers, native plant communities, and rare species. Edgewood 467 acres are a wonderful place to experience and learn about Nature.  I will have to return in the spring when the wild flowers are in full bloom and his well visit the education center when it is open.
