Full Forest Bathing sessions 2½ hours, £35
We are excited to announce our new Harmony in Nature therapeutic sessions in the London area at Cannon Hill Common, SW20 9DB near Wimbledon Chase, Raynes Park and Morden. The area is easily accessible by public transport.
50% of the benefit from Forest Bathing is proven to come from the phytoncides emanating from trees when walking in an ambient forest environment. However, mindfulness has a separate evidence base for inducing a 'feel good factor' as well as demonstrating a reduction in stress and an improvement in mental health and wellbeing.
Cannon Hill Common has several lovely ancient trees (likely over 200-300 years old) and some charming walkways under the canopy of woodland. We are confident that participants will experience some therapeutic benefits even from these session of connecting mindfully in nature.
DOGS: Regrettably we cannot accept dogs on our Forest Bathing+ sessions unless they are trained Guide Dogs.
INCLEMENT WEATHER: We operate in all weathers (we just request that you wear appropriate clothing) except winds exceeding 30mph and/or electrical storms due to safety reasons.
