Time to relax and open your senses to nature
Time to relax and open your senses to nature

Overview

End your week with a relaxing, slow guided Forest Therapy walk amongst the beautiful trees at Weston Park.

You will be guided through a series of activities that involve slow walking, tuning into nature using all of your senses, sitting and observing and enjoying feeling connection. Slow down and allow your whole being to enjoy this time, just for you, to relax, reset, restore and return to yourself.

Originating in Japan in the 1980s, Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing or immersion in the forest) was found to be an effective preventative health practice that also connected people more deeply with the beautiful forests. Ongoing research has shown that trees and plants give off volatile oils called phytoncides that have physiological and psychological benefits.

The guided Forest Therapy walk will boost your immune systems, reduce stress, regulate pulse and blood pressure and help you feel calm amidst the everyday stresses of modern life.

Formalities to be aware of: your host is a qualified Forest Therapy guide with the International Nature & Forest Therapy Alliance (INFTA)

This 2-hour guided walk is suitable for adults and children 16 years and older.
