What is Shinrin Yoku?
Shinrin Yoku literally translates as ‘Forest–bathing’ and is the practice of immersing yourself in nature to improve your well-being. Shinrin yoku walks tend to be a slow, mindful wander to contemplate nature with all the senses.
The 2-day training course covers:
Ancient Woodland, Dartmoor
Putting Nature First.
We include the mental, emotional and spiritual needs and benefits of connecting to Nature at a deeper level.
The experience of ‘awe & wonder’ leads to an appreciation of the natural world (and our place within it), and therefore a desire to protect and nurture it, to give something back.
We call this Reciprocity and is part of our ecological heritage and ‘belonging’.
Ecotherapy is this reciprocal healing of the Psyche, through our devotional attention to the rhythms and patterns of Land, Sea and Sky.
