Article Description :

Join us for this slow guided Forest Therapy morning walk beside the Cotter River to experience the beauty and rich biodiversity of this place and deepen connection with our watershed. I will guide you through a series of activities that involve slow walking, tuning into nature using all of our senses, sitting and observing and enjoying feeling connection.

Originating in Japan in the 1980's, Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing or immersion in the forest) was found to be an effective preventative health practice that also connected people more deeply with the beautiful forests. Ongoing research has shown that trees and plants give off volatile oils called phytoncides that have physiological and psychological benefits for us.
The guided Forest Therapy walk will boost our immune systems, reduces our stress, regulate pulse and blood pressure and helps us feel calm amidst the everyday stresses of modern life.
