September FB newsletter Issue 8September in Britain is back to school after the summer holidays. It's the month of harvest, blackberries abound on the bramble bushes and apples are plentiful on the trees, conkers and chestnuts are starting to ripen.

The month of September was named after 'septimus' meaning the 7th month in Latin. September was the 7th month when the year started in MarchTo the Anglo-Saxons, September was called Hālig-mōnaþ meaning Holy Month.

During September, we have the Equinox on 23rd, when night and day are equal length across the globe. It's a good day to focus on harmony and balance.

This year we will be running one-hour taster Forest Bathing sessions at the Surrey Hills Wood Fair in Cranleigh on the 10th/11th September weekend (see below for full details). We have full Forest Bathing events on the 13th (Tadworth/Epsom), 17th (Shere), 29th (London SW20). Our Full Moon Meditation takes place 7.30-9.30pm (UK time) on the night of Saturday 10th, with the Harvest Moon peaking at 10:58.

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!

Surrey Hills Wood fair, Cranleigh

Surrey Hills Wood Fair imageThe Surrey Hills Wood Fair is brimming with traditional rural charm celebrating our woodland heritage, wildlife and of course the beauty and versatility of wood. A celebration of the Surrey Hills within the beautiful setting of woodlands and surrounding countryside with easy access from Cranleigh. 

The Surrey Hills Wood Fair is a fantastic day out for all ages. To help you plan your day, there is a list of all the fun, crazy, innovative and traditional activities that you can take part in. In order to take part in these activities (including our 1-hour taster sessions), you must also have tickets for the Surrey Hills Wood Fair.  We will have a stand in the Space for Nature marquee and also near the entrance.

We will be offering 1-hour £10 taster sessions for adults at 11.30 & 2.30 on each day. We believe one hour is the minimum requirement to get tangible benefits from a nature connection session. Attendees will be entitled to book a 2for1 offer on one of our full sessions. All forest bathing sessions which will take place in all weathers except 25+mph winds or electrical storms. Book your taster session via our the Harmony Healing shop. Katie is away, so I will be working with Lisa Duncan from Hinoki Forest Bathing, who is one of our fellow member of Surrey Hills Enterprises.

?     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.
