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. 
Harry Edwards 2022:

We will take you on a mindful, sensory journey throug h 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.

This session will be calming and relaxing and FB+ has scientifically proven beneficial therapeutic effects. You can learn more about the practice on our forest bathing section of the website.

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.  

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.

When you have booked your session, your guide will send you forms to complete and return by email before the event, as well as further instructions for the session.

We look forward to welcoming you to Forest Bathing+.
