Forest Bathing Autumn Immersion-Full

Forest Bathing Autumn Immersion-Full

‘Rest and reconnect within the restorative arms of the forest’

Forest-bathing is an an evidence-based wellness practice which originated in Japan in the 1980’s. Meditation Coach and Forest Therapy Practitioner, Ann Ward from Xhale  will offer you a number of creative invitations to help you to slow down, disconnect from the business of life and support your re-connection with nature through your senses.
The forest environment supports stress management in the following ways: 2 hours in the forest will help boost your immune system for up to 10 days; stabilises blood pressure and heart rate; lowers the production of stress hormones; relaxes muscles and the nervous system; boosts mood, energy levels and promotes creativity and sleep.
We will meet at 9 am at the new Tourist information office at Slieve Gullion forest park. What to bring: Please wear warm, comfortable clothing with a few extra layers as we will be sitting still, waterproofs, walking boots, hat and gloves. Also bring a small rucksack, pencil/pen and notepad, water and a hot drink.
Cost: £16.76. Book here.
