What is Forest Bathing?

  Developed in Japan about four decades ago, it is a cornerstone of preventive health care + healing in Japanese medicine. While we know and simply can FEEL the positive effects, researchers have established a robust body of scientific literature on the health benefits of spending time under the canopy of a living forest. Now their research is helping to establish forest therapy throughout the world.

We LOVE that it is SO simple, yet so powerful: a person visits nature, spends time in the forest, walks in a relaxed way — maybe even practices a little yoga under the canopy — and receives tremendously calming, rejuvenating and restorative benefits.

We’ve always known this intuitively. And now, over the past several decades scientific studies demonstrate the mechanisms behind the healing effects of simply being in wild and natural areas.  

So let’s get out there and bathe in the forest!

We know the truth by the way it feels…

Still, here’s a bit more science behind Forest Bathing…

Did you know that many trees give off organic compounds that support our “NK” (natural killer) cells that are part of our immune system’s way of fighting off disease?

The scientifically-proven benefits of Forest Bathing (known as Shinrin-yoku) include:

  • Boosted immune system functioning, with an increase in the count of the body’s NK cells.
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Reduced stress
  • Improved mood
  • Increased ability to focus, even in children with ADHD
  • Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness
  • Increased energy level
  • Improved sleep

Just as impressive are the results that we are experiencing as we make this part of our regular practice:

  • Deeper and clearer intuition
  • Increased flow of energy
  • Increased capacity to communicate with the land and its species
  • Increased flow of eros/life force/prana
  • Deepening of friendships
  • Overall increase in sense of happiness

 Cancellation Policy

Refunds – less deposit of $408 – are available 90 days prior to the retreat. We cannot provide for cancellations WITHIN 90 days of retreat. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury & health issues, family emergencies, inclement weather, etc.) but we have costs already incurred + contracts to honor when reserving retreat centers and hotels.

Thank you for your understanding.

We would be thrilled to have you join the magic!
