    Finding balance in our busy and pressured lives can be challenging, but if we allow an appreciation of birds and nature to slow us down we improve our overall well-being. Research shows that exposure to nature actively reduces stress, depression, and anxiety, while helping build a stronger heart and immune system. Birds are gateways into deeper experiences with nature, magnifying these benefits. Through the mindful observations of birds and their habitats, we learn not only about them, but about ourselves.

    This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Saturday, April 27, 2024 from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm. Cost is $29. Please click link for registration and additional information: https://mtcubacenter.org/event/ornitherapy-for-your-mind-body-and-soul-2/
