INTRODUCING FOREST BATHING AT KINGFISHERS
The Happy Forest Bather, Laura Gwynne
3 OCTOBER 2020
11:00 - 12:30
Kingfishers is set in 120 acres of beautiful rural Suffolk and the ideal location to experience the calm and health benefits of forest bathing by trained Forest Guide Laura Gwynne from the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy.
What is Forest Bathing?
Forest Bathing sessions will consist of invitations that stimulate our senses to take notice of the nature around us whilst enjoying time to be still and present. There are moments to be in circle together alongside times for self exploration and solo wandering. We have a small tea ceremony at the end to complete our time together.
Based on the Japanese inspired practise of 'Shinrin Yoku' which translates to 'Immerse oneself in the essence of the natural environment' Forest Bathing offers a creative aspect of being in nature. With many health benefits such as supporting the immune system and providing fresh air and exercise it is the perfect antidote to the sometimes busy lives we lead.
