Back by popular demand, we are pleased of offer the Forest Therapy weekend, based on the Japanese art form, Shinrin Yoku, which can be translated into English as forest bathing. (include link to video). Many of us enjoy nature hiking, but this program is so much more than a walk in the woods. It is a way to drop into the energy of the forest and fully receive the healing of nature. Research has recently proven what many of us suspected all along, that meeting the forest in a state of mindfulness and awareness boosts the immune system, lowers blood pressure, reduces stress, improves mood, accelerates recovery from surgery or illness, increases energy level and improves sleep.
