About

Want to spend a morning reconnecting with nature and let the beauty and calm of an ancient woodland melt away all your troubles and infuse your whole being with peace and joy? Join me last Saturday of every month 10am til 1pm at Clowes Wood near Solihull for Forest Bathing sessions (no nudity or swimming costumes required!).

Also known as Shinrin-Yoku, these sessions are a way of injecting some fun into mindfulness – instead of sitting on a cushion driving yourself crazy watching your mind's unruly antics, you get to mindfully explore the natural world and discover wonders and mysteries as you encounter familiar things in new ways.

You'll be guided through a sequence of gentle activities which invite you to playfully explore each of your senses in turn, expanding your usual range of perception and slowing you right down to experience existence at nature's pace – what I call "Forest Time". This shifts us into a different brainwave state, giving us access to more calm, creativity, intuition and "flow". It's also been proven to have a whole host of other physical and mental health benefits - click on the link for more details and booking.

10% of all ticket sales is donated to Warwickshire Wildlife Trust to help maintain the Woods for the benefit of wildlife and humans alike.  Please note that these sessions are not suitable for children or pets.  Accessibility information: There is a 15-20 minute scenic walk over uneven ground from the meeting point to the forest, and back again at the end. Once inside the forest there will be a little more walking at a slower pace, but the ground can be uneven, muddy, and in places a bit hilly. If you have any concerns about the level of physical activity involved please contact me on hello@healingearthways.co.uk.
