Wirral Forest Bathing

23 April @ 1:00 pm - 24 April @ 3:30 pm

SHINRIN-YOKU 森林浴 – Forest bathing , sensory connection journey, slowly through the woodland – mindfully connecting with nature.

Feeling stressed, overloaded and drained from daily demands? Want to slow down and deepen your connection to nature? Then ‘Forest Bathing’ is the perfect antidote!

Scientifically proven to have numerous physical and mental health benefits including reduced stress, lowered blood pressure, increased creativity, and restored mental energy.

Forest bathing or ‘shinrin-yoku’ as it is known in Japan, is a wellbeing and nature connection practice. It simply means taking in nature using all of your senses and it does not involve any swimming!

You will be taken on a slow, gentle guided walk where you will be offered a series of ‘invitations’ (or activities) by a Certified Forest Guide specifically designed to help support you to be more present and connect with the natural world around you.

Activities such as:

Grunding – The direct contact of the skin on the hands or our bare feet on the surface of the earth. The amazing thing about grounding is that people all over the world in diverse cultures have talked about the benefits and how to improve their health and well-being from being barefoot on the earth for thousands and thousands of years.

FIVE senses – When you forest bath, you’re actively using your sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch to connect with the environment, there will be activities designed spesifacly to connect with each one through a series of invitations from our Forest Bathing Guide

The session will finish with a gathering around the fire for refreshments and a toasted marshmallow.

Invest in your wellbeing in the beautiful woodlands of Bidston Hill and allow yourself time to switch off from the busyness of life, to relax, reset and reenergise.
