Forest Bathing, known in Japan as "Shinrin-Yoku", refers to the practice of mindfully immersing oneself in the forest to enhance wellness and to reduce stress. We will provide transportation from Munich’s main train station to a vast forested area 40 km into the heart of Bavaria. At our “Country House for Mindful Living”, we'll enjoy a freshly made lunch outside on our deck, under a gazebo tent. We will then walk to our forest trail by the beautiful crystal clear Mangfall river. Our program encourages a mindful exchange with the forest environment through a series of “stations”. All exercises were crafted to help participants deepen the connection with nature through the senses. We will guide you through sensory exercises that will enhance and deepen the forest immersion experience. The techniques we use are specifically designed to open the mind to fully receive the healing benefits of the woods. Along the way, we provide a special tea and snacks. 2 1/2 hrs later, we return to our country house, enjoy cold drinks and exchange some thoughts of the experience. After a little surprise give away, (Summer Program Jul-Aug only) we will drive our group through the picturesque Bavarian countryside and stop for refreshments at a Bier Garten in a monastery-brewery with great views of the Alps and amazing Bavarian food. If time permits, people can enjoy an amazing dinner here.
Trees and forests have always been my passion, in my childhood in Argentina, during my life in Canada and now in my new life in Bavaria. I studied forest bathing techniques in Germany, England and Japan. I developed Forest Therapy methods influenced by my mentor Dr. Yoshifumi Miyazaki. His 20 plus years of research showed overwhelming evidence on the health benefits of Shinrin Yoku. My wife, who’s also a certified Shinrin Yoku guide plus mindfulness instructor, and I put together this experience that combines the benefits of mindfulness with the powerful wellness effects of the forest.
