About the Wellness Series: Since the onset of the pandemic, residents from all walks of life have relied on the New Canaan Land Trust’s preserves to find peace and solace. As we emerge from this challenging time, the New Canaan Land Trust, Let’s Talk About it New Canaan and The Community Mindfulness Project have partnered to create a series of wellness events for the New Canaan community, inspired by nature and the outdoors. Through yoga, meditation, shinrin-yoku, and other practices, program participants will learn about and have the opportunity to practice a number of different techniques to promote mental health and wellbeing. The goals of each program will be to teach participants a practice, ensure that they have the resources and experience to continue that practice on their own, and introduce them to the Land Trust’s network of open space.
Future Wellness Series events will be announced through the New Canaan Land Trust’s newsletter, and posted on the Land Trust’s event calendar.
