We will take you on a 3-hour journey through the private semi-ancient woodland of the lovely Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary. Forest Bathing+ is based on the Japanese art of Shinrin Yoku and involves a slow exploration of nature through your senses. Feel the changes in the air, observe the colours, inhale deeply and savour the smells of the season.
We will take you on a mindful, sensory journey through the beautiful woodland at Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary, deep in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Forest Bathing+ is based on the Japanese art of Shinrin-Yoku and involves a slow exploration of nature through your senses. Not only is this calming and relaxing but it also has well documented therapeutic benefits.
Forest Bathing+ has been scientifically proven to have beneficial effects, including stress reduction. You can learn more about the practice and benefits on the Forest Bathing Institute website.
