Wellness for Portland Communities of Care
Nature is restorative, contributes to personal well-being, and provides fodder for group cohesion. Nature can help mitigate burnout for workers in purpose-driven occupations that may also be high stress. Renewal in the Wilderness offers wellness programs specifically for workers in meaningful, yet stressful work. Some of these professions include health care or social workers, first responders, teachers, and faith community leaders, among others.
Multi-day Trip Scholarships: Thanks to the Quimby Family Foundation we are able to offer individual scholarships so that care providers can join one of our Maine-based Community Trips. To request a scholarship click the button here:
Portland Wellness Hikes: On our Wellness Hikes in and around our home-base in Portland, we will put our phones on silent, engage in voluntary acts of simplicity, reconnect with our body, use all five senses, engage in reflections focused on meaningful work, and let our sense of time go (your guide will keep track of time). If participating on a lunchtime Wellness Hike, please bring your water bottle and a snack or bag lunch. This Program is funded by the generous support of the Quimby Family Foundation.
