Forest Bathing Walk
Thursday 19 September 2019 to Thursday 21 May 2020 (MONTHLY event)
Connecting with nature is increasingly being recognised as an important antidote to high-stress, fast-paced modern urban lives. Join them for their Forest Bathing Walk and experience the healing benefits of taking some time out to (re)connect with yourself, nature and community. Nothing to do with taking a bath or shower and very different to a bush walk, their Forest Bathing Walk is a guided mindfulness practice in nature.
Led by a certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide, educator and meditation teacher, this walk involves guided meditation, slow wandering and gentle invitations to connect to the natural world in deeper ways than you might normally. Informed by the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku or forest bathing, this type of mindful walking is calming and soothing to the nervous system and can help boost your immune system.
Throughout the walk they take time to stop and share their experience. The practice brings you into deeper connection with yourselves, your community and the natural world. As well as having documented physical, mental and emotional health and well being benefits, Forest Bathing also inspires you to become more connected and caring custodians of the environment.
