Into the Woods
Slow down. Breathe. Connect.
We know all too well the stresses and hectic pace of modern life. Now more than ever, people are searching for ways in which to switch off, relax and feel more centered. Forest bathing is a wonderful practice to support you in this, though to many it is still relatively unknown.
You may have heard of this practice before, but feel unsure about what exactly it entails, how you might apply some of its techniques in your daily life, or be curious about what you might expect on a guided forest bathing walk.
Into the Woods is here to gently introduce you to this practice. In this telecircle, we will gather once a week for 3 weeks in order to connect with ourselves, nature and one another. During our time together, you will:
Learn about the Japanese origins of shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) and its potential health benefits from a certified forest therapy guide.
Get the opportunity to connect with other women from the comfort of your own home.
Learn easy forest bathing techniques that you can practice at home in order to feel more grounded, relaxed and creative.
Spaces in the circle are limited to 10, in order to keep our circle small and intimate. A minimum of 5 is required in order for the journey Into the Woods to proceed - so feel free to bring a friend along!
What you will learn
Each week in this experience builds on the previous week - book your spot in the circle via email in order to gain access to each of the 3 weeks' gatherings. Here is a brief overview of what we will cover each week:
16 November: The pleasures of presence. Learn easy nature connection techniques to quiet the mind and enliven the senses.
23 November: In between worlds. Learn an easy nature connection technique to help you feel more grounded and calm while the world around you is in constant change and flux.
30 November: Part of a whole. Take part in a simple ceremony which you can apply in daily life not only to become more calm and relaxed, but also to become conscious of what you have learned and bring the circle to a close.
