Therapeutic Thursdays at the Iris Respite House is about engaging in the healing benefits of nature.
Join Hope Grows on #TherapeuticThursdays to learn about the beneficial properties of the Healing & Restorative Gardens on the property.
Individuals will be able to follow the posted calendar of events to engage in meditation, mindfulness, and the therapeutic benefits of actively or passively engaging with the earth. Therapeutic Thursdays will begin on April 22, 2021 (Earth Day) and updates will appear below on this event page for any additions or changes to the schedule of events.
Becoming involved with something outside of ourselves brings meaning to our life and altruism. There is a reciprocal relationship between nature and self; join us to engage in the calming benefits of the earth.
