This is a special opportunity to come and enjoy this nature reserve with a Forest Therapy Guide. Forest Bathing is the Japanese art of 'Shinrin Yoku' which means to immerse your senses in the natural environment. You'll be invited to take notice of what's around you by relaxing your mind and tuning into your open awareness. Switching off from the business of life and allowing the visions and sounds of nature to relax and inspire you.

Laura Gwynne is hosting these 2 hour events at the nature reserve and bookings are direct through Laura. Places are £20 each payable to Laura. Laura makes a donation to the charity Sinfield Nature Conservation Trust for each booking.
