Event description
A sensory connection journey, moving slowly through the woodland - mindfully connecting with all your senses for relaxation and wellbeing.

About this event

Join us and learn about the latest science and experience for yourself the health benefits of spending time in woodland and being immersed in nature, in the picturesque location of Farnham Heath.

TFBI founders, Gary and Olga, have been leading forest bathing sessions for over 10 years and have led hundreds of sessions for thousands of people. They know it works from the transformations they have witnessed, but they also initiated a UK university scientific research programme which has already confirmed numerous health benefits:

"Participants scores improved on measures of safe and relaxed positive affect, compassion for others and from others, rumination on problems, nature connection and pro-environmental attitudes, and mood disturbance-notably depression, anger, tension, confusion and fatigue" - Kirsten Mcewan, Senior Research Fellow. The University of Derby, Department of Psychology.

Although you’ll learn about science and our latest research, this isn't an intellectual exercise, you will also experience how to relax deeply in nature. Think of Forest Bathing as mindful time spent amongst trees.

We use a series of exercises, engaging the senses to tune into the relaxing atmosphere of the forest. In Japan, where forest bathing originated millions of people a year benefit from this practice. Scientists there have found that woodland air carries beneficial essential oils. So, as you relax you will be invited to breath more deeply.

Slowing right down gives you the opportunity to step away from the constant thinking state. So, don’t be surprised if your worries and cares seem to melt away. You will be experiencing nature in the way a child would; seeing things in more detail, with clarity and awe. You’ll never look at woodland in the same way again!

Our team of guides, are fully trained and excited to be back leading these events in Covid safe way. We are looking forward to sharing the restorative power of nature with you!
