Forest bathing is the translation of the Japanese term ‘Shinrin Yoku,’ a widely respected healing practice that has been adopted as a cornerstone of Japanese medicine since the 1980s. It is a practice of mindfulness amongst the forest, and those who partake can expect to experience restorative benefits on the mind, body and spirit.
Forest Bathing is not about getting wet in the woods, but rather a process of soaking in the natural ambience of the forest, supporting your engagement in guided meditation and activities. Once learned, forest bathing can be practiced in any environment with the same remarkable benefits. Slow down, unplug and enjoy your deep connection with the earth within the unadulterated forests of Dominica, the nature island.
