Experience stillness and inner peace by meditating and walking mindfully in beautiful forest areas.
WHAT IS FOREST BATHING?
The term comes from the japanese term "Shinrin-Yoku", literally meaning "forest bathing", or "absorbing the forest atmosphere". Forest bathing gained popularity after various scientific studies has shown the health benefits of spending moments in forests and other natural areas.
HOW IT WORKS
Different mindfulness-practices are used to become present and grounded, as we meditate and walk through beautiful forested areas. The session usually begins with a short talk and a guided meditation with instructions, followed by a meditative walk and meditation practices underway. There is plenty of opportunity to reflect and pause as needed, and the pace of the walk is considerably slower than a usual hike.
You are likely to come out of this session rejuvenated and equipped with a lasting first-hand experience of how wonderful and healing nature can be for us when approached with an open heart and mind.
