Inspired by the Japanese art of Shinrin-yoku, forest bathing is the practice of being amongst trees, using mindfulness to help you tune into your senses, taking in the relaxing atmosphere of the trees and finding a connection to the natural world around us.

 

We will be welcoming Lisa from Hinoki Forest Bathing, who will lead a sensory walk through the woods, sharing how the art and science of forest bathing draws on the therapeutic powers of nature to reduce stress and encourage a profound sense of peace.
