What is Forest Bathing?

Shinrin-yoku translates literally from Japanese as ‘Forest Bathing;’ an easeful and immersive practice that offers many benefits to mind and body. This inviting way of "bathing" our senses in the atmosphere of the forest is backed by thorough medical and scientific research – and the plethora of health benefits are wide-reaching for all age groups.

"Forest Bathing" is now considered nature's remedy to stress and a pathway to a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.

WHAT TO EXPECT

* Two preliminary forms to fill out (Health Questionnaire and Participant Agreement).
* The event will go ahead even in rainy weather. However, if we need to cancel due to inclement weather, bush fires or notifications from parks authorities, participants will be notified on the morning by 9:00 am.
* Dress appropriately for the weather. Comfortable pants, layers work best, and a rainproof outer layer. We recommend that you wear a hat.
* Participants should be able to walk at a slow pace, over various terrain. We recommend wearing closed, sturdy shoes.
* Carry a day pack and bring water, snacks, and personal medications with you for the trail.
* Bring something to sit upon while on the trail. (a stool, chair, or blanket).

Over the three hours you will be spending some time walking slowly and some time sitting. Usually you would be in shade, but sometimes we may make use of a field or other open space.

Guidelines: No accompanying children or pets. All rules and regulations currently in existence at the Redwoods Forest apply to this Forest Therapy walk.

Phones and cameras must be turned off during the walk.
