“By discovering nature, you discover yourself”. Maxime Lagace
Summer brings light and breathes life into the forest, inspiring our many senses and curiosities, witnessing the natural world in full bloom. Allow space for yourself to slow down, become more relaxed and centred, and nurture new connections: with yourself, your community and your surroundings. Enhance your well-being through mindful connection with nature through the beautiful practice of Forest Therapy – inspired by Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing). Learn a variety of techniques to unwind in the outdoors with Scotland’s first certified Forest Therapy guide, Caitlin Keddie.
An immersive experience beneficial for those interested in deepening their nature connection practice, and supporting wellness through greater relaxation and stress reduction.
On a guided Forest Therapy walk, you’ll engage all of your senses through guided meditation, and a series of mindful, creative and unique invitations (activities) helping you to:
– Cultivate your sense of presence and calm.
– Deepen your relationship with the natural world.
– Practice present-moment gratitude.
– Tap in to your creative side.
– Connect with members of your local community in a fun and relaxed way.
– Slow down and reduce stress levels.
– Learn how to further your forest therapy practice at home.
– Continue your forest therapy practice within a community setting.
We end each walk with a foraged tea ceremony using locally foraged herbs for the tea, and light, healthy snacks to mark the end of our session and allow a chance to ask the guide questions or chat further about the experience and practice. This is a lovely way to learn about new plants and connect with nature’s medicine by physically taking in our forest experience.
This guided walk lasts approx. 2.5 hours.
