What is a Forest Therapy Walk?
Forest Therapy is a slow walk through the woods that is intended to help participants slow down and raise awareness of their natural surroundings through a Japanese technique called Shinrin-yoku, which translates to "Forest Bathing" or immersing in the medicine of the forest. It is widely researched as having numerous health benefits including reduction of high blood pressure and stress.
A Forest Therapy Walk is an experience in mindfulness, not a strenuous hike. The walk provides a quiet and reflective opportunity for participants to disconnect from technology and the hustle and bustle of daily life and connect to the healing properties of the natural world. Participants are guided through a series of invitations to help them experience the forest surroundings and connect to nature in a deep and meaningful way.
