Have you ever experienced the calming influence of nature? On October 13th, the Wakefield Estate will hold a special event designed to allow visitors to explore some of the estate's special resources in a new way. At Wakefield Wellness Day, participants will have the opportunity to choose from an variety of activities designed to improve and enhance their health and awareness. The activities will include garden yoga, guided mindfulness meditation, labyrinth exploration, "forest bathing" (no swimsuit required!), nature art, and a talk on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage. This event is designed for all ages, and all activities will be easy and require no previous experience. The day kicks-off with an early bird session of garden yoga at 8 am for those who want to enjoy the gentle morning light of the estate (bring your mat if you have one), followed by the other activities beginning at 9 am (note: yoga will be offered again at a later time).
