Forest Healing Camp
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.
