Event description
An introduction to the practice of Shinrin Yoku, otherwise known as forest bathing, in a small private group.

About this Event

"Shinrin-Yoku"" or forest bathing is the practice of spending time in the forest for better health, happiness and a sense of calm. A preventative medicine since the 1980's, when the Japanese Forest Agency suggested the practice as a way to reconnect with nature and calm stressed out city dwellers, it's a slow sensory walk through the forest using mindfulness, meditation, breathing and walking exercises.

Research has proven that spending time around trees can reduce blood pressure, lower stress, boost energy and boost the immune system. Your guide will invite you to participate in various activities and exercises all designed to awaken your natural senses and slow down your mind, to bring your awareness to the here and now deep within nature.

This session is for adults only, with no more than 10 people in total. A smaller more intimate group allows time for deeper exploration and time to share any observations within the group if participants wish.

Please ensure you wear comfortable clothing and footwear, this is a slow walk and can get colder than on a normal pace walk if the weather is cold or wet. Layers are a good idea, and bring waterproofs if rain is likely.

Thank you to Essex Wildlife Trust for granting access and use of their beautiful Pound Wood Nature Reserve. Each session a portion of the takings will be donated to Essex Wildlife Trust in gratitude for their permission and for all the amazing conservation work they do across the county.
