About The Event

Learn and enjoy the benefits of Shinrin Yoku. This is my 5th 1/2 day Shinrin Yoku event and my 3rd in the Pine Woods. During the event you will experience the whole Shinrin Yoku ceremony.

Shinrin Yoku is the practice of immersing all of your senses while taking in the woodland atmosphere. This is a slow practice and involves walking no more than 2 miles. The practice of Shinrin-yoku is a restorative practice for the mind and body. This practice has been proven to lower blood pressure, reduces stress and boosts your immune system plus much more as you will discover on the day.

This practice will not be on the main path and is much more private and still.

What to expect:

  • Guided meditation that is designed to open your senses and get you in the right frame of mind, switching off from the stress of life.
  • A guided walk and time to experience Shinrin-yoku
  • Time for a light lunch
  • A "Tea Ceremony" where you will enjoy tea (herbal, decaf and caffeinated options) as well as a snack.

This experience is NOT a hike, it is a gentle walk - pleased be advised that there are paths but these are not wheelchair and it is woodland so the floor is natural and not paved.

This is a slow practice and outdoors, so I strongly advise that you wear warm clothes - because of the pace you need to dress warmer than you would on a normal walk.

Wear suitable footwear, either heavy soled shoes or trainers that you don't mind getting dirty.

If you wish to bring a notepad for experience and thoughts feel free.

On booking you will receive a confirmation email and a questionnaire. If you feel that there is anything that you would like to add or ask about then feel free to contact me by email, contact form or call me. All these details will be sent to you in the confirmation email.

If you can not attend then you can transfer the ticket to someone else or change to another date/event. Refund is available if more than 74 hours notice is given. If the event is cancelled due to extreme weather conditions you will be offered an alternative date .
