Samhain Forest BathingSunday 31st October 2021:10am - 12pm
Forest Bathing, also known as ‘Shinrin-yoku’, is a great way of improving your well-being through slowing down, relaxing and connecting with nature. This form of nature therapy was developed in Japan as a result of research that showed that two hours of mindful exploration in a forest setting could reduce blood pressure, lower cortisol levels (the stress hormone) and improve memory and concentration. This two hour guided Forest Bathing session will allow participants time to slow down and relax, connecting through their senses to the woodland environment during ‘Samhain’ which is the Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or darker half of the year. The cost of the workshop is £20 per person.
