Home > Lake District Events > Forest Bathing: Natural Wellbeing at nature’s pace

Discover how the magic of woods can bring you health and happiness, deep peace and restoration, on a Forest Bathing adventure amongst the wonderful woodlands of the Lake District National Park.

The practice of Forest Bathing (Shinrin Yoku – Japanese for “forest” and “bath”) using all of our senses: sight, touch, sound, smell, taste, emerged in Japan in the 1980s. As humans we are instinctively drawn to woodlands: the tranquil, quiet atmosphere, infused with sweet birdsong;  the beautiful, green scenery and fresh, woodland air; the sense of calm, peace and restoration that envelops you.

This event will take place in Mike’s Wood, Staveley, South Lake District – Created and owned by landscape charity Friends of the Lake District, this magical woodland is an oasis of peace and tranquillity.

£5 from every booking goes towards supporting their conservation work.

What’s included:
