Why join us on a Mindful Forest Walk?

 

 

  • Your mind and body will slow down during a Mindful Forest Walk.
  • Time in the forest is restorative.
  • In Japan Shinrin Yoku or Forest Bathing is prescribed for people experiencing stress. Shinrin Yoku translates to “taking in the forest atmosphere”.

  • It is a mindfulness practice that happens in the forest.
  • Please come prepared to be comfortable outside for 3 hours.
  • We finish each walk with a tea ceremony.
