  • Harmony in Nature invitation to Forest Bathing Explorers; it's not just a walk in the park

    FOREST BATHING EXPLORERS - NOT JUST A WALK IN THE PARK!

    WhatsApp Image 2021 07 24 at 10.41.45 5The recurring theme for us at Harmony In Nature during the last month or so has been exploring new potential locations for forest bathing sessions.

    Our usual ones in the Surrey Hills are no longer available to us mid-week, so we've been looking for 'pastures new'. We also wanted a location in London, as many of our friends and contacts live in that area. The images show Cannon Hill Common, London  SW20.

    We know that plenty of you, particularly those with flexible schedules, or children to drop/collect from school, or, like us, simply prefer visiting these lovely places in quieter times, often actually prefer mid-week.

    So, what do we look for in a forest bathing location?

    1.  A good proportion of the route is under tree canopy, and won't disturb wildlife such as ground-nesting birds.

    2.  If at all possible, a more enclosed area for our 'treelaxation', where we can lie/sit or simply be, and connect with the energy of trees, during a more meditative practice towards the end.

    3.  A large, impressive 'mother tree', for our introductory talk about what is going on between nature and humans to make us feel better, as well as what is going in between trees!

    4.  When we check for our risk assessment, not find a number of broken dangling tree branches which could come down in a wind! We don't run sessions if over 30mph, so that mitigates some risk. Not all sites regularly do checks, so we may need to WhatsApp Image 2021 07 24 at 10.41.45 7flag up work needed for safety.

    5.  Some sort of parking nearby, or being reasonably accessible by public transport, or only a short taxi ride from a station.

    6.  A responsive management organisation which is keen to have this wonderful wellbeing activity on their land, and doesn't charge an unfeasibly large sum of money!

    7.  Nice-to-haves (and unconnected!), but not always available:
    a natural water source, toilets

    So you can see that a considerable amount of time goes into finding the right spots, and not all are suitable, or the charge needs us to sell high numbers of tickets.

    We also recognise that there are many lovely places without much tree canopy, and we could still use these, advertised as a 'mindfulness in nature' experience.

    As in life, it's all about balancing the pros and the cons, to enable us to create what we hope is a wonderfully renewing and therapeutic experience.

    New venue additions

    As a result of many days out in woodland, which is always a win, this month of August sees the launch of two new locations:

    Cannon Hill Common, London SW20, Thursday 12th August

    Horsell Common, Woking, GU21 Friday 13th August

    For the superstitious, you may like to know that Tuesday 13th is the unlucky day in Spain, so don't let the date combination put you off!

    Our link below, takes you to more information on these individual events, as well as our usual monthly weekend ones in the Surrey Hills AONB. We are packing in the walks in four locations between the 8th and 15th August.

    The colour violet has an established association with spirituality. Having the highest frequency in the visible spectrum, violet is at the point of transition to the next octave of light. During the pre-Dynastic period of Khem (Ancient Egypt), the Violet Flame of Amenti was ruled by the Deities Ausar (also known as Wzr or Osirus), brandished by Sekhmet, and made freely available to Akhenaton. Both in Atlantis, and subsequently during the Essene era (which spanned the lifetimes of Mother Mary, Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene), this powerful tool was retained under the Guardianship of Angels Melchisadec and Ariel.

    This 6¾ hour course will cover:

    • Properties of the Violet Flame of Amenti, used for spiritual alchemy, transmutation and protection.
    • What is Alchemy?
