Launched in August 2021, We hold 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.
This session will be calming and relaxing and FB+ has been scientifically proven beneficial therapeutic effects. You can learn more about the practice on our forest bathing section of the website.
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 therapeutic benefits from connecting mindfully in nature.
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.
Your guide will share many interesting facts, for example, how trees communicate and the role they can play in our strengthening our immune system.
You will be required to complete and return the registration form in advance, so look out for the welcome email from your guide a few days before the event.
