What you'll do

Forest bathing is a form of nature therapy practiced in Japan in which you bathe in the atmosphere of the forest, fully taking it in through your senses. For this relaxing virtual experience, you can join from your living room, your backyard, your balcony or your garden. I will start by offering a guided sensory experience to help calm your mind and arrive more fully present in the body. We’ll use conscious breathing and bring awareness to the different senses and, through them, to the nature around you. I will then offer a series of sensory invitations that help us stay present and to connect with ourselves and with the natural elements around us. After each invitation, there will be the opportunity to share what we are noticing. In this time of social distancing, it is an incredible opportunity to connect to yourself, the nature around you and people from all over the world. I will close the experience by making a special tea, teaching you about a foraged plant. Nature therapy allows us to slow down, be present and stabilise our nervous system, allowing it to find healthy ways to self-regulate. This is so needed in these stressful times. By the end of the experience, you will feel more relaxed and connected to the beauty, simplicity and uniqueness of yourself, nature, and the people around you.
