June is British summertime. The roses bloom, imprinting their perfumed scent into the extended evenings leading to the Solstice on the 21st. Garden flowers and hedgerows are splendidly colourful and summer berries are abundant. Seasons are topsy turvey with the elderflower, usually a May blossom, in full bloom as June begins. After two crazy years, we will relish the picnic season with strawberries & ice-cream plus elderflower cordial; despite optimism versus realism whilst planning for both rain and/or sunburn risk.

The month could be named after Juno, the Roman Goddess linked with marriage. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called sera monath (dry month), which is not necessarily our modern-day experience.

In UK, on 21st June, we have the Summer Solstice marking the turning point of the year, after which days start to get shorter again. We have just completed Week 5 of a 6-week course for the charity 'Mind' (in Woking) and we are delighted with the results which are also being studied by Derby University. We have a Surrey Forest Bathing event on Saturday 25th at the private woodlands in the grounds of the Harry Edward's Healing Sanctuary (Burrows Lea, near Shere, Surrey). 

We can hire our venues at Cannon Hill Common (SW20), Horsell Common (Woking GU21) and Harry Edwards (Surrey Hills near Shere) for forest bathing use for private groups, enquire for details. Next month, we hope to start offering monthly sessions at the Kosmon sanctuary in Tadworth. See below for more about our forthcoming public events.

Surrey/London Forest Bathing Events

Through a selection of simple sensory activities, you will learn how to enhance your perceptions and slow down to focus on what could easily be missed. We end with a treelaxtion;  a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience, and which, despite the title forest bathing, does not involve any swimming!

Some of the scientifically proven benefits of spending time in woodland include reduced stress levels, stronger immune system response, and a stabilised cortisol cycle.

Our sessions take place in all weathers except 25+mph winds or electrical storms. 

? ☕When we have the right clothing and footwear, usually plenty of layers, and a spare, we can happily stay outdoors for hours. Even longer if we take a hot drink and a snack!

?  Forest Bathing (no swimming involved!) is an evidence based wellbeing activity. As well as boosting the immune system for 2-4 weeks, balancing blood pressure and reducing blood sugars, typically participants feel a reduction in anxiety (and rumination) and a sharp improvement in concentration afterwards.

Within Surrey, via Harmony In Nature, we facilitate Forest Bathing+ Sessions to help adults reconnect with nature and reap the therapeutic benefits.
