Awakening Your Senses – 2 hour Forest Bathing Immersion

As we enter winter, we are naturally entering a period of rest,  reflection and restoration.

Slieve Gullion forest is a perfect haven to deepen your spiritual connection with nature. This sacred mountain is a mythological sleeping giant where you will rest, reconnect and re-energise over the next 2.5 hours.

Ann will support your forest immersion through guided mindfulness meditation and she will offer you creative invitations to deepen your connection with nature. You will begin to gently slow down and switch off, while awakening your senses. This is the perfect chance for a digital detox and to relieve techno-stress.

Forest Bathing is an evidence-based wellness practice which originated in Japan in the 1980’s as a stress prevention intervention. 2 hours in the forest boosts your immunity for up to 10 days. Your forest experience will end with a tea ceremony with organic wild apple & cinnamon with short bread from a local traditional bakery.
