Event description
Forest bathing is a mindful way to slow down, de-stress and connect with nature. This walk takes place at Sherwood Arboretum.

About this event

Forest bathing is a mindful way to connect with nature, support your health and wellbeing, and wash away the stresses of the modern world — no water necessary!

Inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku, it is simple and powerful . It involves slowing down, and immersing yourself in the atmosphere of nature in a conscious and contemplative way. You do this by awakening your senses, and tuning into what you can see, hear, feel, taste and smell.

Led by a certified Nature and Forest Therapy guide, this practice can help you unwind and recharge, renew a childlike sense of wonder about the world, make you more grounded and present, and deepen your relationship with yourself and those around you.

Let's wander, together, to a place of calm, clarity and connection.

Where

This small group walk takes place at the beautiful Sherwood Arboretum in Brisbane/Meanjin, on Turrbal and Jagera country.

Ample parking is available on site.

Details of where to meet on the day will be provided 48 hours prior to the event.

What to expect

This event has a maximum of 8 participants, and is suitable for people 12 years and over.

It runs for 90 minutes.

Your certified guide, Monique Ross, will lead you through a mindfulness meditation to help you to switch off and slow down.

In partnership with the land, Monique will then offer a series of simple and open ‘invitations’, carefully crafted to help you explore and engage in any way that feels right to you. In between invitations at various sites, the group comes together to share what they are noticing.

It is a very gentle experience that is intentionally slow; you can expect to travel no further than 2kms over the entire course of the walk. The path should be manageable for all fitness levels, as well as assisted wheelchair users.

If you have any accessibility or mobility concerns, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
