Forest Bathing

The perfect introduction to this popular Japanese therapy. Immerse yourself in this experience, using the forest as a source of natural well being, followed by a delicious lunch or indulgent afternoon tea.

We invite you to join us for a two hour forest bathing experience with Swedish teacher Helena Skoog followed by a delicious two course lunch or full afternoon tea.

Helena was born and raised in the forests of Sweden and has spent the past four years living off-grid in ancient forestry in Sussex.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term ‘forest bathing’ simply means the practice of slowing down and totally immersing yourself in the forest atmosphere. Inspired by the Japanese art of Shinrin-yoku which draws on the therapeutic powers of nature to reduce stress and impart you with a profound sense of peace.

Helena will skilfully guide you through a series of sensory invitations enabling you to connect, in the present moment, with yourself and your natural surroundings.
