Shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing takes participants slowly and intentionally through nature. Through a series of activities, you will be facilitated to awaken your senses to deepen your connection with yourself, with nature, and with others. And you may be surprised by the stories that nature is holding for you.


Why forest bathing?

The fast paced lifestyles that we are accustomed to in Singapore can cause a great deal of stress - physically, mentally and emotionally. Living in such a dynamic environment, most of us never have the luxury to consciously slow down and introspect, and are not aware of the accumulated pressure in our minds and bodies. During forest bathing, we take on a mindful walk of no more than 800 meteres, and this immersive experience in nature will benefit you by providing the much needed mental rest and rejuvenation.

Science and research studies on forest bathing have quantified the following health benefits - improved mental clarity, increase body immune functions, increase production of anti-cancer proteins, lower stress levels, lower blood sugar levels and lower blood pressure.


Reviews

"This was a beautiful experience. I really enjoyed just slowing down and thinking about my environment in a different way."


"Good for de-stressing and great fun!"


你是否曾在我们这个生活步伐迅速的城市里停下脚步, 用心感受大自然的美好?
你是否曾静下心来观望八方,在我们这座高楼林立的都市里看到那片热带雨林?
或许因为我们生活在繁忙的都市里,因此所看到的、听到的、感受到的也仅是那片"石灰森林"。


森林浴(又称 '自然环境浴')即将带领你穿梭那些你不曾留意的绿色痕迹,让你有机会在身处“石灰森林”的当儿,重新拥入大自然的怀抱。日本森林浴研究发现,人们通过森林浴,可以有效提高人体的免疫功能,增强人体的抗癌机能;同时还具有调节情绪的能力,能促使人产生愉悦与快乐的情绪。


150分钟的时间,800米的距离。看似微不足道的数字,却能让你在这时间段,一步一脚印地完成这段净化心灵之旅。在导师的引导下,你能通过各种感官感受到自然的力量,建立让自己沉思的空间,用心感受,与自然对话,洗涤城市人所背负的烦恼与压力。在整段旅程结束后,你会发现你的身心所获得的远远超出那150分钟,800米。


Number of participants: We take up to a maximum of 12 particpants. A minimum of 5 participants is also required. In the event that the walk is cancelled, registered participants will be entitlted to another similar replacement walk of their choice.

人数:最少5位,只限12位。如果因不够人数而退课,报名者可以参另一个森林浴练习课。




FAQs

Am I suitable for forest bathing if I have never hiked nor spent much time outdoors?

Forest bathing is designed to be accessible to everyone of varied fitness and outdoor experience. The walk is conducted at a slow pace and we typically cover no more than 800 m for the entire session. The trail is also mostly level and no significant physical exertion will be required.

Is there a minimum age requirement for this event?

As this forest bathing session is a slow, mindful and contemplative walk, it may not be suitable for children under the age of 13. However, if you think that your child would benefit from the session and would enjoy the pace, he/she is welcome to register as a participant and join us in the session. We are in the midst of developing forest bathing sessions specifically for children, please stay tuned!

What if it rains?

In case of wet weather, we will personally contact you at least 30 minutes before the meeting time to confirm if the walk will proceed or be cancelled. Generally, walks are cancelled only in the event of very heavy downpour or if there is risk of lightning. For walks that are cancelled by the host/guide, participants can register for another walk without any additional charges. However, there will be no refunds.

Are we really walking in a forest?

Forest bathing allows a person to connect with nature. Nature exists outside forests too. City gardens, parks and beaches are some examples where meaningful connection with nature can take place and for you to receive your well-deserved rest.


常见问题

如果我不常在户外活动,我适合参加森林浴活动吗?

森林浴活动适合具有不同体能的人士参与。全程活动以慢速进行,而路程也不超过800米。路面多为平坦,因此不会大量地消耗体力。

参与森林浴活动者是否有最低年龄规定?

由于森林浴活动是一段净化心灵之旅,需要放缓脚步进行沉思,因此或许不太适合13岁以下的孩童参与。然而,若你认为你的孩子能享受其中,并从中受益,我们绝对欢迎他加入这一活动。我们正在计划特为孩童举办的森林浴活动,尽请留意!

如果下雨,那该怎么办?

若下雨,导师会在活动开始的30分钟前亲自联系你,告知你活动是否继续、延迟或取消。若活动必须延迟或取消,参与者可在不缴任何其余费用的情况下报名参加另一场森林浴活动。然而,不会有退款。

我们是否真的是在森林里步行?

森林浴给予人们与大自然面对面的机会。大自然不仅局限于森林里,森林之外也处处可寻。城市花园、公共公园及海滩也能提供你与大自然对话的良好契机。
