What is Forest Therapy?

Forest Therapy is the practice of slowing down, awakening the senses and reconnecting to the intelligence of our bodies. Inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin Yoku ("Forest Bathing"), it is a science-based framework which supports physical, mental and spiritual health and wellbeing. It also holds space for healing and nourishing experiences to arise.

Relationships and reciprocity

Forest Therapy is also a journey towards wholeness. A journey of remembering and reconnecting. By guiding Forest Therapy walks, I support people in nurturing relationship and reciprocity with the natural world, themselves and others.

Robin Wall Kimmerer once asked:

 

"I wonder if much that ails our society stems from the fact that we have allowed ourselves to be cut off from that love of, and from, the land. It is medicine for broken land and empty hearts"

 Forest Therapy can be a vehicle for healing those broken relationships, as we begin to see ourselves as part of Nature again, to honour it and love it, so that we make it our life's commitment to ensure its flourishing and protection. The more-than-human-world also has much to offer us to mend broken relationships with ourselves and our communities.

In our practice, we say:

 

"The Forest is the therapist, the guide opens the doors".

 

I look forward to supporting you by opening these doorways of connection.

See you in the Forest.

"Especially in these challenging times, treat yourself to reconnecting with nature. Switch off your phone and spend a couple of hours being soothed by the forest under the expert guidance of George. You'll feel much better for it!"
