Forest Bathing at Charlotte's WoodA chance to relax and connect to the woodland
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. Each 2 hour guided Forest Bathing session will allow participants time to slow down and relax, connecting through their senses to the woodland environment.
At Charlotte’s Wood each new season is welcomed with an opportunity to bathe in the forest
Each Forest Bathing journey will follow the optimal flow sequence which will include connecting with the woodland environment through your senses and walking slowly and mindfully. You will be offered invitations to experience the woodland in different ways; sometimes alone and sometimes with others. We will finish with a tea ceremony. The focus will be on slowing down, taking notice, enjoying calm and relaxation. For more information about the next session click on the link below:
