Find peace in the forests of Hälsingland by forest bathing your senses in natures atmosphere.

Forest Bathing or Shinrin-Yoku as it's called in Japanese, is a slow hike through nature that ends in a tea-ceremony in the forest. During a forest bath we open our senses and take in the forest and natures atmosphere. By observing nature with our senses we find a deeper connection to the nature around us. The soul finds peace and creativity increases. This type of sensual contact with nature has shown a deacrease in bloodpressure, improved cholesterol levels, improved sleep, boosted immune system and is especially good at decreasing stress.

Date: Saturday the 18th of July 13:00-15:00 and 24th of July 13:30-15:30
If the interest for forest bathing increases, more times will be added.

Cost: 300 kr per person.

Length: Approx. 2 hours.

Place: Ersk-Matsgården

What to bring:
Since Shinrin-Yoku is a slow hike it is recommended that you bring an extra layer of clothing so you don't get cold, you might also need something to sit on. A water bottle would also be good to bring.

The forest bathing is led by Helena Johard who's a biologist, artist and certified Nature- and foresttherapy guide and runs the forest bathing at Frenellsgården in Längsterbodarna, Bergsjö.
