As our world becomes more virtually connected, we’ve become more disconnected from our natural roots, which can have dramatic effects on our sense of health and wellness. Join Forest Therapy Guide Jessica Spooner of Women Hike Wild to learn about the Japanese practice of Forest Therapy (aka: Forest Bathing, or ShinrinYoku).
Intuitively we know the impact that spending time in nature has on your mindset and ability to unwind. But are you aware that the benefits are scientifically measurable?
When spending any amount of time outdoors in a natural setting, our blood pressure lowers, serotonin increases, anxiety/stress/anger is lessened, ability to focus increases, sleep improves and so much more.Science is proving that our phytocides are increased which has great benefits in our immune systems.
So what is Forest Therapy exactly? It is an intentional practice where the guide will offer invitations to help deepen your experience in nature. Jessica will share with us how forest therapy works and will introduce you to practices that you can use to reset your body and make the most out of your time spent in nature.
“The forest provides the therapy, I am simply the guide that opens the door”
