FOREST HEALING CAMP

NATURE IS A POWERFUL HEALER
Forest Healing Camp shares bushcraft skills with the added element of natural healing.
The Forest Healing Camp gives you the chance to unplug from hustle and bustle of city life and tune into an ancient woodland environment. You will take part in deep breathing, mindfulness exercises, meditation, Qi gong, sound healing techniques and forest bathing aka Shinrin-Yoku.
You will spend time learning specific bushcraft skills. Discover different fire lighting techniques and learn about the ecology of woodlands, whilst discovering the positive benefits of being in nature. Forage for tinder & fuel, learn about useful trees, fungi & plants and take part in a sound healing session using a high frequency gong, tibetan singing bowls, rainstick or the didgeridoo.
Depending on the availability of instructors. Forest Healing Camps may include yoga, nature art therapy, meditation, wood work or belly dancing/movement workshops.
Sound healing is helpful to people who have trouble meditating, quietening or stilling the mind. Instruments such as the Gong, Tibetan Singing Bowls, Rainstick, Didgeridoo or Native American Indian Flute are used in sound healing sessions in the woods. All these instruments are designed to increase a deep state of relaxation.
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 & in woodlands is scientifically proven to have positive health benefits on physical and mental wellbeing. It can support in boosting your immune system, can help to regulate sleeping patterns and reduce stress or anxiety.
Tune out of all the city noise & distractions of an urban environment.
Let go of any stresses, restore balance and rejuvenate in nature.

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 behaves positively differently out in nature, it actually works better. Once you tune human senses into the nature, you become aware of the present moment. Breathing in the fresh forest air away from the harmful pollutants of the city oxygenates your blood. In general, spending time in a forest environment 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, nature art therapy 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 high frequency gong, tibetan singing bowls and rain sticks. You will 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.

"Let's all bathe together!
Inviting you to share the intention of uniting through community. It’s not always about words but how we can tune into our full spectrum of senses and bathe in the supportive harmonics of the forest. A space for creativity and for grounding together through open heart circle.
Basking in the stillness of silence from with in. Bringing awareness to our breath and how this important life supporting function can also teach us how to balance our emotions and nervous system, make clearer decisions, less mind chatter, develop with a digital detox and boost our immune system.
You will also experience the 'Journey of Sound' to support each others unique expression of who we are through enveloping the harmonic sounds of the 32" symphonic gong, 7 chakra balancing singing bowls, koshi bells, shamanic drum, rain stick, and chanting good vibrations.
Pack your bags, Come along, and See what happens!”
All are welcome!
