Finding Calm in Nature

The Therapeutic Hiking program was designed to help clients better identify and manage their emotions, while connecting with nature and finding a sense of calm in their day-to-day lives. During the program clients spend as much time as possible in the wilderness, learning to be mindful in any activity, and getting to know nature just as we would get to know another person.

Out at Widow Maker on the Kananaskis River, clients spent some time discovering land formations and talking about how they might affect a river’s flow. The group was lucky enough to arrive at the river before the dam opened, allowing them to see formations while the water was very low. Soon after the group arrived the dam was opened.  The group was so excited  to observe the changes in the growing river!
