Thorp Perrow Arboretum - Forest Bathing

Forest bathing

Immerse yourself – mind, body and soul - under the relaxing canopies of our beautiful trees!

Spending time in nature is well-known for being beneficial for wellbeing so come along and experience our guided Forest Bathing and Mindfulness Walk led by Faith Douglas, our curator, mindfulness practitioner, and author of The Nature Remedy.

Forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, is the practice of walking in a natural environment and consciously connecting with what is around you. It is a sensory exercise that allows you to slow down both body and mind. The health and wellbeing benefits are numerous: reduced blood pressure, reduced stress and cortisol levels, improved mood, better sleep, and increased ability to focus are some of the most notable. It may also help accelerate recovery from illness or surgery.

After the workshops, herbal teas will be served and you’ll be invited to take lunch with new-found friends in the Tea Room with a special 10% off voucher.

The workshop will take place outdoors so sturdy footwear and suitable seasonal outerwear are a must.
