Feature Event: Forest Bathing and Enchanting Spring Picnic, Margaret River
Relax on this restorative nature immersion experience in the enchanting Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. There has never been a better time to explore new wellbeing opportunities, to embrace the benefits of slowing down for improved physical and mental health.
Your certified forest therapy guide will take you on a journey to recharge and connect with nature. The practice involves a series of mindfulness, sensory exploration and slow movement to help relax, become more present and connect with the natural world.
The group will gather in the forest under the tall trees in the secluded Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park about 4 hours drive south of Perth. You will be guided to engage your senses and tune it to the rhythms of nature. Then, we will wander through the forest on a slow and gentle walk. The walk length is approximately 2km. The experience concludes with an enchanting picnic and Japanese inspired tea ceremony, where you will have time to reflect, surrounded by bird song and fresh forest air.
The experience is guided by Belinda, a finalist for the FACET Golden Guide Award in the 2022 Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards. Belinda is an INFTA certified Forest Therapy Guide, registered Meditation Facilitator and environmental scientist. Belinda’s mission is to share the practice of forest bathing with people who are keen to improve the quality of their lives.
