How can you tap into the healing powers of nature? Learn a variety of peaceful nature meditations, energising forest games and gentle mindfulness activities that help you find calm, clarity, creativity, and healing with nature. Here’s an easy-to-follow course in Shinrin-Yoku or Japanese forest bathing also known as healing forest walks.
If you love nature, you will love this program. Our world is a complex place full of ups and downs. Stressful relations, unhealthy habits, unpredictable situations, polluted environments pose a big challenge to our health everyday. Most people overlook the signs until it is too late. So how do we take care of our mind and body in a way that’s simple, yet highly effective? How can we take nature’s help in creating a healthier life for ourselves and our loved ones?
This course will teach you structured nature walks that involve sense training, nature connection through creativity and forest mindfulness. Discover the remarkable practice of Shinrin-yoku – the Japanese concept of immersing in nature to get multiple benefits for our physical, mental, emotional and social health.
