Route 1: Activity 3

Route 1 is on rugged, non-paved trails and takes about 60 minutes to complete, but you can take as much time as you need to move through the activities. This tour requires extensive walking on unpaved trails and is best if you have a full hour.

Activity 3: Body Breathing

As you walk through a natural space, bring your attention to the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide happening in the environment. The trees around you are the reason you are alive. They take in your exhalation and convert it to oxygen for us to use.

Imagine the trees exhaling fresh oxygen into the air, which you breathe in. As you visualize this process, picture taking oxygen through your entire body–pulling it up from the ground and then exhaling through the crown of your head. Imagine the trees expanding and contracting with each breath. You can do this as you walk or take a moment to honor this sacred relationship.
