Forest Bathing

Forest Bathing

Forest Bathing is an invitation to slow down and to open your senses. Listen to the birds, feel the breeze, see the sunlight reflect in the water and delight in the myriad of colors and shapes that nature has to offer.

By slowing down we become keenly aware of our connection to the living and breathing world around us. It fosters a sense of belonging and ease. Our thoughts can meander in a pleasant and playful way. New insights and creative solutions float to the surface.

Forest Bathing offers a bridge between us and the natural world. Scientific research has shown that immersing in nature in this way proves to be beneficial for your mental en physical health. Forest Bathing lowers the stress levels in your blood, boosts the immune system and improves your sleep.
Whereas you might enter the forest with a sense of fatigue or a busy mind, you will leave feeling rested and refreshed.

The walks are tailor made to each person’s needs and wishes.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”  

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” 

From The Summer Day by Mary Oliver

The Summer Day

Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts het pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
