About this event

Peace in the Park - Forest Bathing / Shinrin Yoku with nature spirit

Now more than ever, we need to take time for ourselves, for our self care, for our healing.

I invite you on a healing journey through the woods.

Attending a two hour drop in session can make such a difference to wellbeing and mental health.

Experience peace now. Get your weekend off to a great peaceful start. Take time away from the worries and concerns of day to day life. To explore the woodland and heal in nature.

When we go walking with others we walk and talk, not noticing the trees and plants around us, the natural environment is usually literally scenery. Our minds are engaged with stories and chatter.

At Peace in the Park, we are free from this chatter to reconnect with nature, at a level and as deep as we want to experience. In a group setting the energy of this experience can feel amplified as we witness each others journey.

A peace in the Park session is forest bathing and beyond. An intuitive and unique mix of healing, nature spirit, personal development and forest bathing. In the space created, we rediscover our inner peace, relaxation and wellbeing.

This is a small group event of not more than seven attendees each session, for a deeper experience.

There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude. There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost.

I invite you to step aside, let go and share a quiet time of listening and being, amongst the trees and the natural environment.

I hold a space for you, inviting you to immerse yourself in our natural environment, guiding you intuitively. A space where tree hugging is a normal healing activity.

The natural environment meets us where we are, we are free to be ourselves, to let go and immerse ourselves in the peace and love of nature. We can experience the healing that we need.

Each session stands alone as a unique experience opens within the presence of the trees and the plant world.

Forest therapy isn't just a walk in the woods. We actively immerse in the natural environment, taking in the shapes, smells and sounds.

Deep and profound healing changes can be experienced as we enhance our reconnection to the natural environment.

We journey through the beautiful areas, greeting the ' Sacred Cedar' and other trees of the Scots pine, experiencing it's sweet resin, the birch, sweet chestnut, oak and beech.

The sessions are a safe space consisting of a variety of invitations, which may include

    • A sensory experience, journeying through our senses within the healing, natural environment. 
    • Breath work / heart breath
    •  Peace & Love active meditation - this releases tension, calms the mind and extends feelings of love

FAQs

 

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is parking along Conduit Lane next to the woods.

There are fast trains from London Victoria to East Croydon. Then from outside the station its a short tram journey, the tram to New Addington. Get off at Lloyd Park stop then walk along the main road to your left. Passing Coombe Woods School opposite, then the Premier Inn. Coombe Woods and Gardens is just beyond the Premier Inn. It's about a ten minute walk up from LLoyd park.

 

What do I need to bring / wear?

We walk and sit on the ground, so bring a mat or something to sit.

Bring a drink.

We move quite slowly in forest bathing so do wear plenty of layers. Changing weather adds to the magical experience so please make sure you will be dry and warm.

In winter, the paths can get muddy and slippery so suitable footwear for walking in the park and woods.
