So, what the heck is Forest Bathing ?? Well, I'm gonna tell ya :)
Forest bathing is a gentle, meditative practice of connecting with nature. Simply being present, with all of our senses, in a forest or other wild area, can produce mental, emotional, and physical health benefits. It is a simple, accessible antidote to our nature-starved lives and can inspire us to become advocates for healing our relationships with the more-than human world.
Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. In Japan, forest bathing is known as shinrin-yoku. Studies there have demonstrated a wide variety of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition.
We are so excited to combine the principle's of Forest Bathing with the uniqueness of WalkAbouts.
Join me and walk slowly. Stand in the sand. Breathe deeply. Open all your senses.
This is the healing way of Shinrin-yoku.
