Shinrin-Yoku – mindful immersion in the healing atmosphere of the forest
In Japan, “Shinrin-Yoku” – forest (air) bathing – is a medically recognised method for health and burn-out prevention. The phytoncides and terpenes of the forest reduce stress and stimulate the immune system and the body’s own regeneration processes. They strengthen the heart, reduce brain activity and the stress hormone cortisol and ease mental stress. So if you immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the forest, you are doing your health good.
Back to nature! Consciously perceive the senses, quiet the mind, gather strength, feel health – this is what NATURE ATELIER Forest Bathing offers. Perception and breathing exercises, meditations, sensory experiences and land art support the mindful immersion in nature to experience its healing power directly.
The nature atelier Waldbaden always takes place outdoors. The events each have a special focus and take place in the most beautiful forest areas of the Taunus. The tour guide is Sigrid Schwarz.
Please bring: weather appropriate clothing, seat pad/seat cushion.
Participation information: anyone who is sure-footed and can move through the forest can take part. A certain stamina / fitness is not necessary, as we will often be strolling. It is advisable to leave exercise-loving children and dogs at home for this event, so that we can immerse ourselves undisturbed in nature and the forest.
