After seeing their advertisement on Facebook for a Wild Women's weekend, I took the leap and booked to go by myself, I am in my early 20s and was a little scared I'm not going to lie, Yara and Kristine were incredible. They were so welcoming and I felt like I was at home in the woods with them. They were really helpful with how they explained things and made sure everyone felt very supported. The drumming session with Mel just made me cry, I obviously had a lot to release and this weekend was the PERFECT way to do it. From learning how to build my own shelter, start y own fire, cook my own food and just be at peace with myself I couldn't recommend them any higher. Take the leap and just go, you may find that part of you, you were always searching for. I know I did." - Meg Abernethy-Hope "I attended Women in the Woods with Yara and The Drum Woman. What a fantastic experience! Yara was a great guide to the forest and an inspiring advocate for the importance of woodlands. She and her team provided great support to help me explore and feel comfortable staying in the woods. When's the next one?" - Louise Karuna

Virtual Forest | Dawn Chorus | Spring 2020

It is scientifically proven that just staring at trees through a window can help to reduce stress and lower anxiety levels. So imagine the positive health benefits of being in an actual forest. The Japanese practice of "Shinrin yoku" aka Forest Bathing. Is positive for both physical and mental wellbeing. It is proven to reduce stress hormone production, improve feelings of happiness and free up creativity, as well as lower heart rate and blood pressure, boost the immune system and accelerate recovery from illness. “Social prescribing” and "nature therapy" is a growing movement in the NHS and can include volunteering, gardening, sports activities, cookery and befriending. Doctors in Scotland have now started to prescribe bird watching and hiking as a form of nature healing and therapy. “Forest bathing is an opportunity for people to take time out, slow down and connect with nature. We think it could be part of the mix of activities for social prescription,” Stuart Dainton of the Woodland Trust told the Observer. “Evidence about its benefits is building.” Shinrin-yoku was developed in the 1980s in Japan. Although people had been taking walks in the country’s forests for centuries, new studies showed that such activity could reduce blood pressure, lower cortisol levels and improve concentration and memory. A chemical released by trees and plants, called phytoncides, was found to boost the immune system. As more research highlighted the benefits of Shinrin-Yoku, the Japanese government incorporated it into the country’s health programme. Li - president of the Society for Forest Medicine in Japan, and the author of Shinrin-Yoku: The Art and Science of Forest Bathing – is a world expert and has conducted numerous studies. “It’s a preventative medicine, not a treatment,” he told the Observer. People spend their lives increasingly indoors, he said. About 80% of Japan’s population lives in urban areas, and the average American now spends more than 90% of their time indoors. But we are designed to be connected to the natural world, to “listen to the wind and taste the air” to hear the music of nature. We have been programmed otherwise but we always remember our true roots. Thanks for watching. Stay human. Go to nature.

Amazon adventures, working as a Survival Instructor in the rainforest in Brazil with Elite Survival Training teaching survival skills. Being in the rainforest activates a part inside you that may have been dormant and forgotten. What the tree breathes out, we breathe in. Our lungs even looks like trees. And if just one ancient tree can support life for up to 2000 different species of biodiversity, just imagine what a whole forest holds. The video includes voices from: •Yara Ghrewati | Wildeye Adventures | Survival Instructor •John Sullivan | Elite Survival Training | Explorer | Survival Instructor •Dr. Mark Plotkin | Ethnobotanist | Founder of the Amazon Conservation Team | TED Speaker •Joao De Silva | Born from an Amazonian tribe until he was 14 years old and now works as a guide in the Amazon in Brazil. •Shaman Estaban | A medicine man born of a tribe in the Amazon The poem at the end... I saw this poem about 15 years ago written on a piece of paper, stuck on a bamboo wall in the jungles of Bukit Luang in Indonesia. I don't know who wrote it. But thank you to whoever did. I memorised it because I loved it so much. Wildeye Adventures website: https://www.wildeyeadventures.com/ Wildeye Adventures Facebook Page - https://www.facebook.com/wildeyeadven...
