Whilst some of you may relish the idea of bounding out into the forest by yourself, others may feel a little daunted. Without any guidance, some find the forest really uplifting, others find it dark and sinister. Forests as places to be feared came about from a time when communities were living in tiny settlements within predominantly wooded landscapes, and to stray beyond the boundaries was potentially dangerous. Since then, woodlands have become an emotive metaphor for all sorts of other things, relating to the subconscious, and these get woven into stories that can really ignite the imagination.
It's time to change this. And so, if you feel ready, try an exercise for yourself that I often suggest as part of a forest bathing wild immersion experience. It's simple, but if you have any questions or doubts, just drop me a note and I'll be happy to guide you further.
