HiN Feb issue V2February in Britain sees the steady increase of daylight hours leading us towards spring, but air temperature remains unpredictable with this often presenting as the coldest month of the year with reasonable chance of snow. Look out for snowdrops poking through the soil, together with the yellow, white and violet of crocuses (or croci, apparently both plural forms are acceptable). The subtle aroma of witch hazel blossoms may linger. and the pretty white flowers of the wood anemone, known as an indicator of ancient woodland (rather like bluebells come May), may also appear but it's still early for them. Local ponds should be full of frogspawn, as well as similar gelatinous spawns laid by toads and newts.

The month of February was named after the Roman God Februa (sometimes called Februus) and his annual Roman springtime festival of purification and cleanliness. To the Anglo-Saxons, February was called 'Sōlmōnath', derived from 'sōl' - an Old English word for wet sand or mud. However, according to medieval scholar Bede, it relates to the month when ritual offerings of loaves of bread and savoury cakes were typical to ensure a good year’s harvest.

Joanna's Full Moon Meditation takes place 7.30-9.30pm (UK time) on Sunday 5th, with the Snow Moon peaking at 23:07. We have Forest Bathing and Harmony Healing vouchers available as gifts.

Harmony in Nature Forest Bathing Events in Surrey/London

Forest bathing involves us immersing our senses in the woodland atmosphere, taking them for a meander among trees. You will learn how to enhance your perceptions and slow down, through the therapeutic benefits of guided mindful sensory activities with fellow nature lovers, becoming aware of what could easily be missed. We end with a ‘treelaxation’and aim to leave you feeling deeply relaxed and rejuvenated.

Forest Bathing is an evidence-based wellbeing activity. Spending time in woodland has been shown to potentially boost our immune system for 2-4 weeks, balance blood pressure, reduce blood sugars, stress and cortisol levels, amongst other benefits. Participants may feel a reduction in anxiety, depression or rumination, and an improvement in concentration, memory and creativity afterwards, as well as improved sleep.

We tend to offer fewer public sessions in the winter, although all our venues are available for private bookings, themed events and corporate sessions, so do enquire for details. 

Our only public 2½-hour nature connection forest bathing event of the year is Sunday 26th February. See below for details.

☕ With 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 to warm us up!
