Newlands Corner, Guildford, Surrey
3-hour Forest Bathing session £35, 2 hours in winter months £25
We will take you on a 3-hour journey through the beautiful woodland of Newlands Corner, part of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Forest Bathing+ is based on the Japanese art of Shinrin Yoku and involves a slow exploration of nature through your senses. Feel the changes in the air, observe the colours, inhale deeply and savour the smells of the season.
This session will be calming and relaxing and FB+ has scientifically proven beneficial therapeutic effects. You can learn more about the practice on our website www.tfb.institute.
Our Forest Bathing+ route at Newlands Corner takes us through mixed woodland including oak, yew and birch. If time, we like to visit a grove of ancient Yews whose girth suggests ages of 500+ to more than 1000, on the northern wooded slope.
Your guide will share many interesting facts, for example, how trees communicate and the role they can play in our strengthening our immune system.
You will be required to complete and return the registration form in advance, so look out for the welcome email from your guide a few days before the event.
