"The art of forest bathing is the art of connecting with nature through our senses. All we have to do is accept the invitation. Mother Nature does the rest." - Dr. Qing Li
Nature and forest bathing is a gentle guided sensory exploration that is suitable for everyone. On this guided 2.5-hour immersive journey, we will open our senses - literally and metaphorically, and discover the pleasures and delights that nature offers us. Curated and accompanied by a certified forest therapy guide, the experience will provide structure as well as openness to allow each participant's sensorial re-discovery to self, others and nature to unfold. Finally, we will gather and conclude our experience with a tea sharing. Having taken a pause from our world of busy, and reconnected with the world of nature, the latency, the coming inward, the observation, the listening, the nourishing, the playful exploration ... we now attend the world with our rested minds and bodies, and rejuvenated spirits.
This journey will bring us through the expansiveness and gently undulating curves of a quiet wooded meadow. A sense of space, open-heartedness and freedom. If you prefer a forest experience, please register for .
* This is not a hike or naturalist walk. You do not need prior hiking experience or extreme fitness to join us, but you do need to be comfortable to stroll/walk - sometimes on terrains that may include dirt trails, sand, grass and stairs. Experiences are not strenuous.
