Event description
Immerse your senses in nature on a guided wander through the Karawatha Forest with a certified Forest Therapy Guide.

About this Event

This is your chance to connect with nature more deeply than you may have before. With a guide beside you who is trained to deliver Forest Therapy, you can access the therapeutic effects of nature more fully. This is because you'll be shown how to calm down and cultivate presence on your walk. You'll receive the invitations you need to deepen your awareness of the natural elements around you and within you. Plus, it's delivered in an easy to follow way that requires no previous experience in meditation or mindfulness. We'll walk at a gentle pace over ~1.5km so you don't require a high level of fitness either.

Background Info

Have you heard the talk about nature being good for you? Indeed, nature can enhance our mental and physical health in the way it interacts with our cardiovascular, nervous and immune systems. For example, studies of people spending time in nature have found reductions in blood pressure and heart rates, relief from stress and attention fatigue, and even boosted activity of natural killer cells (which support our immunity).

The practice of mindfully immersing oneself in nature can be traced back to Japan where it is known as Shinrin-yoku ('taking in the forest atmosphere' or 'forest bathing'). It came about as an intervention for the intense stress levels experienced by the working population. Nowadays, doctors in Japan can provide green prescriptions to stressed out patients because they know nature's important capacity to recuperate our mental and physical health. With so many beautiful natural spaces around Australia, it only makes sense that we make the most of them to boost public health and wellbeing.
