Forest Bathing? Nature Therapy? Shinrin – yoku?
What’s it all about?
We all know that time spent in nature feels really good.
Doctors world-wide report the astounding health and wellness benefits of time spent in nature. Trees are nature’s diffusers: they give off essential oils that are absorbed into our bodies and improve our physical and mental well-being. Physicians now write prescriptions: RX:nature. There really is a mind – body – nature connection!
Forest Bathing aka Forest Therapy or Nature Therapy, builds on the Japanese practice of shinrin–yoku. Translated it means “showering in the forest”. But Nature Therapy is much more than just a walk in the woods. By adding elements of mindful, creative explorations of the wonders of nature, participants de-stress, unwind and experience new connections to nature in our spectacular private nature sanctuary. Be inspired by the babbling brook, relax in the hanging chairs in the forest, wonder at the escarpment formations or practice yoga amongst the lavender. Wild By Nature Forest Sanctuary is not just a forest; it is a wondrous experience for the soul.
In our Forest Bathing Eco-Adventures, you will be guided through our incredible forest, home to abundant wildlife and native plants of the Bruce Peninsula. Experience the unique escarpment landscapes of this beautiful UNESCO World Biosphere on trails designed for nature therapy.
“To walk in nature is to witness a thousand miracles.”
“The guided invitations to explore the forest were so rewarding, I did not want to leave!”
“I have never felt so relaxed, and so at one with nature.”
