    Instagram Camrose & Area Men’s Shed Instagram Page
    Description

    A Men’s Shed offers a gathering place and an opportunity to pursue common interests with other men. By choosing projects and activities that are suited to members of each Men’s Shed, the group can work together with a shared purpose while enjoying each other’s company.  The participants determine their own interests and activities and this varies greatly between Sheds. Some focus on woodworking, or metalworking, bicycle repair, electronics, model buildings or even car repair and restoration. Sheds usually attract older men, but many have younger members too. Whatever the activity, the essence of a Shed is not a building, but the connections and relationships between its members as they work together on things they want to do.

    Local Men’s Sheds are part of a provincial, national, and international movement that offer men that camaraderie and sense of a shared purpose that is often found in the workplace.  A Men’s Shed is open to all men who want to have that kind of connection: retired men, shift workers, men with leisure time, or anyone else who wants to enjoy company, camaraderie, and constructive pastimes.  The positive mental health impact of men’s participation in Men’s Shed worldwide has been shown in research to decrease social isolation, enhance self-esteem, and in some cases, increase access to health information. While men with low social interaction often experience loneliness, depression, and other negative health outcomes, a Men’s Shed is not a mental health agency. It’s a venue for healthy interaction, meaningful contribution, and good fun —but one with proven mental health benefits.

    The Camrose & Area Men’s Shed supports projects aimed at giving back to their community – by participating in community events, or volunteering. Involvement at the Shed is always casual and attendance is optional rather than required. Meetings are held every Thursday at the Camrose & District Centennial Museum’s Old Timer’s Hut from 12:00-2:00 pm. Coffee and snacks provided.

    Description

    Forest Therapy is a practice that supports health and wellness through guided immersion in forests and the environment to promote the well-being of both people and the land.  It is inspired by Shinrin-yoku, the Japanese practice of “Forest Bathing”.  In Forest Bathing, people spend time in forested areas to enhance health, wellness and happiness.  Studies show Forest Therapy can improve mental health, anxiety, physical health, and lower blood pressure.  Participants are guided through a clearly defined sequence of invitations to slow down, allow the senses to open, and experience the environment to deepen the reciprocal relationship between participants and the forest.  This supports wholeness and well-being.  Slow walks in the forest are typically less than a kilometer long and suitable for all ages and physical conditions.   Invitations are open-ended.  There is no expectation for what participants should experience or receive.  Participant spend time in silence, listening and feeling.  They become reconnected with their senses and open to what the forest has to offer.
