Nature Walk with the Breathe Easy Coach

We went on a biking walk combination in nature at the Fort Tilden Gateway Park. I stepped my participant through the being in nature experience. He was able to connect with nature through his senses primarily through hearing and secondarily through seeing. We were able to see some birds in their habitat. My participant was able to tap into nature and get a profound message from nature. It was wonderful to see the connection and creative process unfold. We shared our thoughts in video!

Participant Feedback

I saw: Variety of trees and shrubs; birds; gravel path, old World War 2 Battery; and cyclists.I felt: At peace. For that period in nature the stresses of timelines and deadlines melted away and I could be in the moment.

I learned: That spending time in nature has physical, mental, and emotional benefits and is essential for healthy living.

The most important thing I will take away from today’s walk is: The feeling of tranquility and calm. It extended beyond the time spent in nature and helps to reset my mind for the rest of the day.
