Forest Bathing combines the benefits of mindfulness with embodied practices, and the benefits of psychology and social connection - all in a natural setting. It is very low impact, not strenuous hiking.
With a focus on slowing down and awakening the senses, this restorative wellness practice involves a series of guided invitations to help relax, slow down, become present and make contact with nature. The experience invites room for listening, healing and reflection, for quiet and accepting presence, and for inquiry through all the senses, in a non-judgmental setting.
Simply being out in nature provides a healing, grounded and connective experience. The practice of Forest Bathing fosters a deeper more intentional connection with nature and ourselves.
A qualified guide combines all these elements and ensure the experience is safe, supported and inspiring. Each experience lasts 2.5 - 3 hours but we not go more than a kilometre.
If you are overwhelmed by the noise and 'busyness' of modern life, then come along to destress, relax, restore and reconnect.
This practice is also known as shinrin yoku, forest bathing or forest therapy.
