Event description
Retreat from busy-ness, bask in calmness again on a guided nature & forest bathing experience through a vast wooded meadow in Singapore.

About this event

"The art of forest bathing is the art of connecting with nature through our senses. All we have to do is accept the invitation. Mother Nature does the rest." - Dr. Qing Li

Nature and forest bathing is a gentle guided sensory exploration that is suitable for everyone. On this guided 2 to 2.5-hour immersive journey, we will open our senses - literally and metaphorically, and discover the pleasures and delights that nature offers us. Curated and accompanied by a certified forest therapy guide, the experience will provide structure as well as openness to allow each participant's sensorial re-discovery to self, others and nature to unfold. Finally, we will gather and conclude our experience with a tea sharing. Having taken a pause from our world of busy, and reconnected with the world of nature, the latency, the coming inward, the observation, the listening, the nourishing, the playful exploration ... we now attend the world with our rested minds and bodies, and rejuvenated spirits.

This journey will bring us through the expansiveness and gently undulating curves of a quiet wooded meadow. A sense of space, open-heartedness and freedom. If you prefer a forest experience, please register for Nature & Forest Bathing in the City [Forest].

* This is not a hike or naturalist walk. You do not need prior hiking experience or extreme fitness to join us, but you do need to be comfortable to stroll/walk - sometimes on terrains that may include dirt trails, sand, grass and stairs. Experiences are not strenuous.

How you will benefit

  • Rest and enjoy physiological health benefits of forest bathing backed by Science research.
  • Re-enchant with nature in a gentle accessible way.
  • Slow down, leave the chaos and de-stress.

What to expect

  • The experience takes on a slow immersive pace. It is not physical and not strenuous.
  • A certified forest therapy guide will facilitate the experience. Nature and forest bathing invitations are suggested but are never compulsory.
  • Inclusive of materials (where required), light snacks and tea.
  • Please bring your own tea cup.

Due to the more contemplative, slow and quiet nature of the experience, it is recommended for anyone aged 16 and above.

Forest bathing is a Science-backed practice that has been shown to benefit our health. You can find out more about forest bathing here.

Organiser of Nature and Forest Bathing in the City 【Meadow】

休 means ‘to rest’. Rest, is the basic ingredient in all approaches to wellness. To deeply rest and restore is a skill lost and forgotten as we traverse and hustle through our modern busy lives. To rest is to allow yourself to be in the space of no-thing-ness.
Through our programmes such as forest therapy (forest bathing or shinrin yoku) and yoga nidra, we invite you to rest. We invite you to re-connect. We invite you to rise.
From our regular forest bathing walks to yoga nidra workshops to customised rest programs, we are committed to promoting 'a good life' across all ages and communities in Singapore. Private or customised nature connection programmes are available and are suitable for wellness, coaching as well as corporate retreats.
Join us to rest for our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Join us in #ThrivingFromRest !
