Drawing on the ancient Japanese tradition of Shinrin-Yoku, or forest bathing, this unique event is designed to help you connect with nature in a profound and meaningful way.
Unlike what the name might suggest, forest bathing doesn't require any actual immersion in water. Rather, the practice encourages you to become more attuned to your natural environment, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells in a mindful and intentional way.
Whether you're a seasoned nature lover or simply looking for a new way to immerse yourself in the magic of nature, this is a unique opportunity to feel more relaxed, energised, and connected to the natural world around you.
On the day of the forest bathing activity, it's important to keep an eye on the weather forecast. Both heat and cold, as well as wet and dry conditions, can pose their own challenges.
Some of our favourite walks take place on rainy days, where the colours, views, sounds, and smells of nature take on a saturated quality, providing an immersive sensory experience. If you dress appropriately, you can stay warm, mostly dry, and comfortable. However, if the weather conditions become particularly challenging, we may need to reschedule the session for another day.
So, please come prepared wearing comfortable and weather-appropriate clothing and footwear to ensure that you have an enjoyable, and immersive forest bathing experience.
