Explore New Trails, Meet New Friends with SBCC School of Extended Learning Tuition-Free Class “Nature and Self-Healing for Older Adults”

SBCC School of Extended Learning’s free upcoming class, Nature and Self-Healing For Older Adults, will give students the chance to make new friends while walking a new trail each week and learning about nature’s healing process.

Taught by Rodger Sorrow, a certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication, the class is now available tuition-free at two skill levels to make it accessible to everyone. The Beginning level, for participants who can walk 1-2 miles at a gentle pace, meets 9-11:45 a.m. Wednesdays 3/21-5/16. The Intermediate level, which also involves 2-3 mile hikes, meets 9-11:45 a.m. Tuesdays 3/20-5/15.

Students learn how to incorporate nature as a harmonizing influence and partner in the self-healing process. Techniques taught include meditation, being open to change, diaphragmatic breathing, being “present”, stretching techniques, and taking risks.
