  • Booking essential

Everybody needs nature. Today’s busy lives can have significant impact on our mental and physical wellbeing and many of us instinctively head outside as a way to unwind and feel refreshed. But how often do we take the time to stop, focus our attention on the smaller details and really connect with the outdoor places we love?

'Forest Bathing' is a direct translation of the Japanese shinrin-yoku, and despite what the name suggests, it is not water bathing but bathing in the beauty and restorative powers of nature. Developed in Japan, the concept of this relaxation practice is very simple: to slow down and immerse yourself in the forest atmosphere in order to improve wellbeing.

In this forest bathing event, Amanda Bate of Forest & Nature Bathing Sussex, guides you through a mindful and relaxing woodland wellbeing session, using your senses and breath to ground you in the moment, calm your mind and reconnect with nature. Join us for this exclusive event in the natural beauty of Sheffield Park and give your wellbeing a boost.
