About

Do you like being outdoors in nature?
Do you find being in nature calming and restorative? 
Would you like to deepen those feelings?

If so, then coming to our Forest Bathing (Shinrin Yoku) session could be for you…

What is forest bathing?

Forest Bathing has its roots in Shinto and Buddhist traditions and was developed in Japan in the 1980s as a way of helping the increasing number of workers with chronic stress. Naming this practice "Shinrin-Yoku”, Japan has created over 64 official “Forest Therapy trails” since its conception, and the practice has since spread all over the world.

During this 2-hour session you will be led by local Forest Bathing Guide Calvin Silvester (Certified through Nadur and Mind Hillingdon) who will help you to learn how to immerse yourself and connect with nature by utilising as many of your senses as you can through a series of activities called “invitations”.

The session is designed to slow you down, becoming more aware and mindful of the joy of our natural surroundings and really bathing in the smells, sights, sounds and taste of nature. Noticing and really taking in the small things we can miss on walks or hikes. The session ends with a tea ceremony where we celebrate nature and our reciprocal relationship and share our experiences.

The Windsor Great Park Environmental Centre is a partnership with the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT). As well as running programmes for Primary schools and natural activity programmes during school holidays, the Centre also runs a range of activities for adults including bat walks, willow weaving and forest bathing.

Its private location within Windsor Great Park provides the ideal indoor and outdoor space for inspirational learning opportunities within the forest and grassland.
