An Introduction to Forest Bathing+

Friday 06th September 2024 10:00 - 15:00

Doors open: 9:50 am

Join us for a journey along the winding trails of RSPB The Lodge in Sandy, easily accessible from the A1 but set in the beautiful landscape of Bedfordshire’s Greensand Country.

Forest Bathing+ is the perfect way to escape our busy lives and tune in to the natural world.  Our session will involve a gentle walk through the woods – there’ll be plenty of stops to enjoy sensory activities designed to calm body and mind, before ending with a guided relaxation. We’ll also begin to find out about the science that shows why time in nature is so good for us – and hopefully experience this for ourselves!

Your guide will be Liz Burfield, who trained as a Forest Bathing+ guide having experienced first-hand the benefits of mindfulness and nature on depression. Her sessions are friendly, down to earth, and suitable for anyone who enjoys being outdoors.
