Event description

Description


*This session is conducted in English. A confirmation email with details of the walk (exact meeting point, what to bring etc.) will be sent to you upon registration.


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. We keep the group size small for this walk at 10 pax, so that it is more personal and everyone can enjoy his/her solitude space in nature.


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 metres, 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

"Good for de-stressing and great fun!"





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, postponed or cancelled.

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.
