Here’s an easy-to-follow course in Healing Forest Walks, also known as Shinrin-yoku in Japanese or forest bathing. Explore the healing secrets of nature and go on a journey of self-discovery.
NATURE AND YOU
A healthy body and a peaceful mind are precious gifts. However, we live in a complex world, facing challenges big and small each day. That’s why we need to be prepared for the uncertainties of life. So how do you find motivation, inspiration, and healing when you need it the most? How can you master a practice that grows your inner calm, and resilience? And most importantly, how can you share the magic of nature to create a healthier, happier life for yourself and for those who matter to you?
What are you seeking? Nature knows.
This course will teach you structured nature walks that involve sense training, nature connection through creativity and forest mindfulness. Our learning program includes beautiful ideas and activities from Japan, Finland, India, Amazon, America and other countries around the world. You will also discover the charm of Shinrin-yoku – the Japanese concept of immersing in nature to get multiple benefits for our body, brain, energy, mood and relationships.
