Awakening Your Senses – Forest Bathing Immersion

The next special forest immersion will celebrate the summer solstice.  Solstice literally means “light standing still”.  You will begin to gently slow down and switch off, while awakening your senses.

Slieve Gullion 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 3 hours.

Ann will support your forest immersion through guided meditation and she will offer you creative invitations to deepen your connection with nature. 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 special tea ceremony.

Notes for Visitors

Please wear warm, comfortable clothing and a few extra layers as we will be standing and sitting still in the forest, waterproofs, walking boots/shoes. Ann will provide an A4 size rucksack,  small waterproof  mat and other materials to support your immersion.

Let us know of any health conditions, allergies or mobility issues and we will try our best to support you.

Ann will be in touch via email with further details when you book.
