Find peace and purpose in your life, deeply connecting with nature and your inner self. Re-establishing a deep connection to nature is very healing and nourishing. Nature has the power to guide and teach, to soothe and nurture, to excite and energise. This immersive and creative retreat combines the Japanese art of Forest Bathing with green and intuitive creativity.
The retreat will begin with Forest Bathing led by Jen from Lakeland Well-being. Forest Bathing or Shinrin-Yoku is a natural well-being therapy originating from Japan. Immersing yourself in the forest, it is a wonderful opportunity to relax, unwind and deeply connect with the natural environment. Slowing down bodies and minds, allowing you to switch off from the pressures of life and simply ‘be’ at one with nature. Time in the forest allows worries to fall away and bodies and minds begin to heal.
Flowing through a series of mindful ‘invitations’ to connect with yourself and the forest. Exploring how the forest supports physical and emotional health, we open our senses and engage with nature through mindful walking and movement, breathing and sound meditations; deepening our awareness and culminating in a traditional tea ceremony.
Engaging in sensory invitations allows us to be at one with nature, tuning in to our intuition and finding inspiration in the natural world. Sharing our reflections with a group of like-minded people over a cup of fresh herbal tea brings a sense of friendship and connection.
Alex from Wild & Green will then intuitively lead you through an immersive creative experience connecting with nature and all your senses, with a focus on seasonality and an eco-friendly, zero waste philosophy. You will be inspired to create a beautiful and unique botanical piece of art with meaning, which is in tune with your surroundings and your blissful retreat experience.
