NATURE IS A POWERFUL HEALER
Forest Healing Camp shares bushcraft skills with the added element of eco-therapy (forest bathing) and sound healing.
The Forest Healing Camp presents the opportunity to unplug from hustle and bustle of city life and tune into an ancient woodland environment. Take part in bushcraft skills, plus an element of natural health and eco-therapy. Take part in deep breathing, yoga, mindfulness, a sound bathing session and forest bathing (Shinrin-Yoku).
Spend time learning bushcraft and skills of the wild. Discover useful fire lighting techniques, forage for tinder & fuel and your cook a meal over a fire.
Learn about the ecology of woodlands, ancient trees, useful plants and fungi. Practise outdoor skills that will assist in setting you up for a night in the woods.
Depending on availability of natural healing instructors, take part in a sound healing therapy. Receive a Gong bath session (Gongs are powerful sound healing instruments, the vibration washes over you) or you may receive a didgeridoo sound healing session (using instruments which are designed to shift the brain into a more relaxed state of mind)
Forest Healing Camps may also include Hatha yoga, nature art, forest bathing and meditation.
Sound healing is helpful to people who have trouble meditating, quietening or stilling the mind.
To be mindful is being in the present moment. The habit of not being able to switch off repetitive thought patterns can create stress, depression or anxiety.
Spending time around trees & woodlands is scientifically proven to have positive health benefits on physical and mental wellbeing. It can support in boosting the immune system, help to regulate sleeping patterns and reduce stress or anxiety.
Tune out of the city noise & distractions. Let go of any stress.
Restore balance and rejuvenate in nature.

"SPENDING TIME IN NATURE IS HEALING FOR THE MIND, Body & soul"
Nature has always been a great teacher & healer. Much evidence is coming forth about how spending time in nature is good for the mind, body & spirit. The human brain is more enhanced and behaves better out in nature. Once you tune human senses into a forest environment, you become aware of the present moment.
Breathing in the fresh forest air away from the harmful pollutants of the city, helps to oxygenate the blood. Spending time around trees and woodlands helps to boost the immune system.
Forest Healing Camps combine bushcraft skills alongside natural healing techniques such as forest bathing aka Shinrin-Yoku, yoga, dance/movement, breathework or sound healing/bathing sessions using various instruments that are designed to shift the brain into a more relaxed state. The natural healing element on camp is subject to instructor availability, however, all our forest healing camps include a sound healing session using either a high frequency gong, tibetan singing bowls and rain sticks. You either take part in Hatha Yoga or receive a gong bath healing session underneath a canopy of trees.
We organise our own events but you are more than welcome to get in touch, if you have a group in mind. You can take part in one of our public camps or create your own forest healing experience. Depending on the availability of our connected instructors, we organise all events in ancient woodlands based in Sevenoaks. However, if have access to private land space or woodlands, we would love to hear your thoughts. We may organise a visit - depending on distance - and are happy to assist in organising a personalised woodland healing experience.
