Forest Bathing - Nature-based events
Health & Wellbeing
Brighton & Hove
Step off the world and into the trees... Experience freedom, magic and the restorative touch of nature as Amanda (Forest & Nature Bathing Sussex) takes you on a sensual, meditative and mindful journey into the beautiful Sussex woods, meadows and beyond. You will be invited along to stunning, private woodland, country estates and parks on the Brighton and Lewes borders.
Shinrin Yoku (founded in Japan and literally translated as forest bathing) is not water bathing but bathing in the beauty and healing powers of nature. Amanda offers guidance and invitations to help you build a deep relationship with nature and to bring about feelings of calm and connection. Mindfully walking, using your senses and wandering gently among the trees lowers blood pressure, supports mental health, resets and reboots your whole system and ignites natural killer cells to beat infections.
BELOW ARE OUR PLANNED PUBLIC EVENTS. WE CAN ALSO ARRANGE EXCLUSIVE AND BESPOKE GROUP EVENTS FOR YOUR BUSINESS, HEALTH ORGANISATION OR SCHOOL. (Please email or call Amanda for further details.)
