Friendly and awe-inspiring Forest Bathing experiences in Surrey & beyond

Hello & welcome

I'm Justine from WonderWoods.

The idea of Forest Bathing is a simple one. The term is a direct translation of the Japanese practice known as Shinrin-yoku, meaning bathing in the forest atmosphere, or taking in the forest through our senses. It's one of the many incredible tools now available to help us connect back to nature and ultimately, back to ourselves.


Come with me on this journey.  You're welcome to sign up and read the free research, e-books and downloads I'll be creating. These won't just be about the forest, but will also delve into the many ways to live a more considerate, happier, more fulfilling and purposeful life. 


And if you want to try Shinrin-yoku for yourself, it can easily be done on your own, ideally giving yourself at least 2 hours for the experience to really take hold. Or come with me, on a wild immersion into the woods. Together, we'll explore this gentlest of environments that were once a much bigger part of our lives, now lost to almost all.


I promise you, it will reawaken your senses. It will bring back the magic in your life. 

 “If I could recommend only one thing for peace, for clearer thought, for wonderment – it would be forest bathing.” 


Shinrin-yoku is a forest walk is a chance to reconnect with our wilder, untamed natural selves that we've lost through domestication. The more time we spend in nature, the stronger this connection gets. 

 “Justine is a wise and wonderful guide”

"Overall, forest bathing can significantly influence cortisol levels over the short term in such a way as to reduce stress"

 “Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air”
-  Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Just imagine going for a forest walk and returning a different person, beguiled, enchanted, in love with life again"


Spending time in nature can ignite the senses in ways we never imagined. What do you love about being outside?  Can you find hidden paths? Where do they lead? 

Teenage son feedback


On a recent Forest Bathing session an anxious mother of a teenage son messaged me to say she'd booked for both of them as 'his birthday present to me'. She worried "...just to warn you there will be a slightly reluctant (and probably quite tired) teenage boy in tow!"


So what happened next? Read the story here. 


How would it feel to be held by the forest and at the same time healed by the power of your own body through your breath? I'm also a Conscious Connected Breath coach and wanted to explore this experience. To do this, we've created a short film to give one perspective on this magical experience.
