Forest Bathing for National Tree Day

  • Wild Play Discovery Centre Dickens Drive Centennial Park, NSW, 2021 Australia (map)

National Tree Day is all about getting outside and reconnecting with nature and your community. Forest Bathing is the perfect way to do just that.

Our Forest Bathing walk is influenced by the Japanese practice of "shinrin yoku". It's quite different to a regular bush walk or walk in the park. During the walk you'll experience being guided through sensory awareness and immersion activities that simultaneously restore and awaken the body and mind. We'll start with some guided meditation and slow wandering, move through some games and more interospective practices and end with a bush tea ceremony in the Pine Forest.

Moving mindfully in nature has been shown to increase compassion, empathy and feelings of connection to nature and other people. Forest Bathing is a wonderful way to feel deeper connection and heightened custodianship for the natural environment on National Tree Day.
