The Beach

The Beach

Aug 13, 2022 | 09:30 A.M. - 11:00 A.M.

Sea Road, Littlehampton, UK

You're invited to join me for an introduction to Nature Therapy on the beach in Littlehampton, West Sussex. The session is based on the Japanese practice of Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing). We'll journey together into the senses to connect with the natural world that is all around us. We'll start near The Beach (the new café opening up on East Beach, Littlehampton) and journey together along the beach, opening up our senses and our hearts to what the natural world wants to offer us in that moment. We do this through a series of invitations - consciously named as there is no right or wrong way to take what is offered to you. Whilst described as a walk - in truth we may travel no more than a quarter of a mile. Sessions are done at a relaxed pace and are open to all. They will take place on the beach - as it is a combination of shingle and sand, sensible footwear is recommended!

It is true nature therapy! The walk culminates in a tea ceremony with snacks. Prefer a private experience? Private walks are available daily, year-round, with advance notice.

799 Pinkerton Run Road
Oakdale, PA, USA

If you’ve made it to this posting, then you have an idea of what a Forest Bathing walk is. If you want more information, check out my “About Me” page, or check blogs from other guides here on FBF.com. You can also check out natureandforesttherapy.earth. As the shadows become longer and the air begins to cool, join us as we saunter toward evening at Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. PBG is a well-loved natural landscape of over 400 acres, 60 acres of which are groomed and tended as gardens, meadow, woodland, and grassy areas around a vibrant pond. The terrain is rolling, but there are no worrisome steep areas. We will be walking on just a few of the trails during our journey of less than half a mile. Depending on the day, we will end our walk with tea and a snack at the pond or meadow. Numerous long-time members of PBG have said that although they have visited the Garden many times, they have never experienced it in the way they did on the Forest Bathing walk. Whether this is your first time at PBG, or your fifteenth, it will be a new experience! I hope to see you! If you have mobility issues, please contact Doug in advance.

1635 River Road
New Hope, PA 18938, USA

Led by Sharon Lohse, nature therapy walks are a unique, immersive, slow-paced experience with proven health benefits. Inspired by the Japanese practice of forest bathing and led by a certified nature and forest therapy guide, you will explore the land of the Preserve and awaken your senses to its sounds, beings, textures and beauty. This experience is different than a hike or naturalist walk. You will be invited to move slowly, wander, pause, observe and reflect. The emphasis is on unplugging, calming the mind and engaging with the natural world. Many studies have shown that this type of experience in nature reduces stress, lowers cortisol levels and blood pressure, increases energy, enhances sleep, increases natural killer disease-fighting cells and provides an overall sense of well-being.

Join us for a session of forest bathing. This walk will provide time to enjoy a 2 1/2 hour experience in the summer forest as we discover what the dynamic season invites us to explore. We invite you to immerse yourself in the forest and experience your deep connection with the natural world, as you join the forest bathing walk on the pristine Transfiguration Preserve in the Hickory Nut Gorge of western North Carolina. The walks are led by Dr. Mattie Decker, an ANFT certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide. Mattie is also a mindfulness teacher, a Zen practictioner, an Episcopal oblate, and a retired professor of education. She is certified in wilderness medicine and first aid. Mattie likes to share this saying from her forest bathing mentors: “The forest is the therapist. The guide opens the door.” Many forest bathing walks will take place on our beautiful Transfiguration Preserve in Bat Cave, NC. Additional walks may be planned for other places of wonder that Conserving Carolina has helped protect. In addition to forest bathing walks, we look forward to offering special events that incorporate music, art, photography, writing, or foraging for edible plants into the forest bathing experience.
