As we move now towards shorter days, November is the month of holding back the dark, with celebrations centring around light, sparks and fire such as Guy Fawkes Night and Samhain in the old Celtic tradition, which is beginning to make a return. Samhain is a Gaelic festival on 1 November marking the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or "darker half" of the year. So join us then in the forest, to awaken your senses at this time of year. These are gentle introductions to forest bathing including sensory and meditative exercises. We take time to explore our woodland landscape, tuning in to our micro and macro awareness of nature and noticing how it communicates with us. The session is 3 hours and will take place at the Surrey Wildlife Trust's private wildlife reserve Nower Wood. See here for details on the location

We'll meet in the car park 10-15 minutes before to begin promptly at 9.30am, finishing at 12.30pm. 


Leaning Into The Dark - Forest Bathing in Nower Wood

  • Forest bathing is scientifically proven to improve health. Countless Japanese studies have revealed how it boosts immune systems, reduces stress hormones, enhances mental wellness and bolsters brain health. It can provide emotional healing, decrease blood pressure, improve general sleep-wake cycles, improve relationship skills, reduces stress and reduce aggression.
