  7. Forest Bathing at Beechbrae


Shinrin-yoku, also known as Forest Bathing is an opportunity and invitation to slow down and exhale. Participants will be guided through a series of invitations, exploring different senses, spaces and landscapes. The session is 1.5-2 hours and is a slow walk, so wrapping up warm is recommended. If you would like to add other activities at Beechbrae to your day please see our Woodland Wellbeing Sessions. "In the practice of forest bathing we immerse our senses in the special qualities of the fluid, oceanic ambience of the woodlands. We walk slowly so we can focus our senses on the myriad ways the living forest surrounds and touches us. Feel the breeze on your skin; hear the gurgling voices of the brook and the calls of the birds; see the movement of trees in the wind. By giving attention to your senses, you turn down the volume on the cacophony of inner thoughts. Your senses bring you into the present moment, where you can take in all the forest has to offer, welcoming it, letting it settle inside you. When the forest is allowed its place within you, it supports your body's natural capacity for wellness and healing. Forest bathing is not the same thing as hiking, The destination in forest bathing is "here", not "there". The pace is slow. The focus is on connection and relationship."- M. Amos Clifford
