Carolynne Crawley, certified Forest Therapy Guide, has prepared a podcast and video for you to learn about, and experience, forest bathing. As she explains in her activities, forest bathing helps us slow down, quiet our busy minds, tune in to all our senses and connect with nature. The practice is inspired by shinrin-yoku, which translates as “bathing in the forest atmosphere,” part of a national program to reduce stress in Japan in the early 1980s. Connecting with nature is also an ancient and modern practice used by Indigenous Peoples to cultivate a deep relationship with the land. Today, forest bathing helps people all over the world experience the outdoors in a new way.
Explore a forest bathing experience with Carolynne in the following ways†. Whichever way you choose to participate, ensure you are standing or sitting safely, and that you are aware of your surroundings.
