Nurture Your Nature
Sydney’s Annual Forest Bathing Event
We all know how important it is to connect to nature as a way of nurturing our own wellbeing. Shinrin Yoku or ‘forest bathing’ is increasingly being recognised as a crucial antidote to high-stress, city living. Centennial Park holds their inaugural Forest Bathing Walk on Sunday 28th July so you can experience all the healing benefits of taking time out to immerse yourself in nature, tune into your inner-most self, as well as spend time with community. The Forest Bathing Walk is a guided mindfulness practice in nature and will be led by a certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide, educator and meditation teacher.
The walk will include a guided meditation, slow wandering and gentle invitations to connect to the natural world in deeper ways than you would in your day-to-day life. Inspired by the Japanese practise of ‘shinrin yoku’, this type of mindful walking is very calming to the nervous system and will help to boost your immune system and lift your spirits.
Becoming more connected to nature fosters caring custodianship within each of us for our precious planet.
Price is $35 per ticket.
Visit Centennial Parklands ‘What’s On’ page for tickets.
You can also book private nature connection walks, events, workshops and retreats that can be customised to your needs through www.barefootwellbeing.com which is what our ARD team did.
Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide, Louise Kiddell guided us on a wonderful journey of reconnection to our natural environment and to each other as team mates. We highly recommend it as a wonderful group bonding experience.
