Spring Equinox Forest Bathing in the Panbos

March 21 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm


As we approach the spring equinox, I invite you to join me for a tranquil and enchanting Forest Bathing Walk—an ode to the longest night’s passing and the return of the sun. As the wheel of the year turns, let’s gather to immerse ourselves in the serene beauty of nature and revitalize our spirits.

Forest bathing, also known as shinrin-yoku, is a Japanese tradition that encourages mindful immersion in nature, allowing us to tap into the healing energy of the forest. This equinox presents an ideal moment to embrace the equilibrium of day and night, and what better way to honor it than by delving into the peaceful embrace of the natural world?

As we wander through the trails, let the forest be our guide, imparting wisdom and solace as we greet the approaching spring together.

A significant portion of our time together will be spent in silence. This offers an opportunity to fully experience the forest and to bond with others who share a desire for deep communion with nature. By eschewing casual chatter and embracing the silence, we can engage our senses more profoundly and forge a deeper connection with the world around us.

Preparation: Attire should be comfortable for walking on natural terrain. Bring a water bottle, but keep other belongings minimal to ensure ease during the walk. Participants are kindly requested to silence and stow their phones, signaling their unavailability for the duration of the event. All participants are personally responsible for their fitness, safety, and well-being, and should come prepared accordingly.

Meeting Details: We’ll convene at the bike racks in the Panbos carpark. Departure from the parking lot will be promptly at 12:00, with an approximate conclusion around 14:30. In case of cancellation due to severe weather, participants will receive notification by 8 a.m. on the day of the event. Space is limited to 18 participants.

Interesting Tidbit: Did you know that in 2018, the National Health Service of Scotland began prescribing activities like birdwatching, rambling, and beach walks in Atlantic winds as part of treatments for chronic and debilitating illnesses for the first time?

“Forest bathing” finds its roots in the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, which translates to “taking in the forest.” This will be a leisurely, mindful excursion through the woods—an opportunity to slow down and reconnect with the wonders of the natural world.

A minimun of three participants is required for a walk to take place. If the minimum registrations do not happen, registered guests will receive a full refund.
