Forest Bathing with We Be Kids

The practice of forest bathing encourages you to slow down, relax and reconnect with nature by quieting the mind and awakening the senses.


What happens on a guided Forest Bathing walk?

  • On a Forest Bathing walk the guide will offer a series of 'invitations' for you to participate in activities that deepen your connection with nature.

  • The walk presents an opportunity to step away from your busy schedule and take time to reawaken all of your senses. Activities are carefully selected for the group and interspersed with opportunities to share.

  • Forest Bathing walks are open-ended, there are no expectations placed on the participant. The walks are between 2 and three hours and are intentionally slow. they are designed to be accessible to all.

Who is Forest Bathing for?
