Forest Bathing in the Engadin
with Anne-Marie Flammersfeld
FOREST BATHING - SHINRIN YOKU
The act of mindfully spending time in the forest, known as forest bathing, has a calming and restorative effect on body and soul. Explore the forest with all of your senses on a magical guided walk and you'll instantly feel a boost to your personal sense of well-being.
“Shinrin-yoku” is a Japanese word that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing”. Forest bathing has been part of holistic preventive healthcare in Japan since 1980. It has been scientifically proven that spending time in a forest has a significant positive effect on the human immune system and relieves symptoms of stress and burnout.
Forest bathing can take on very different forms, but it’s always about being in nature, immersing yourself in it and perceiving it with all your senses. With forest bathing you also learn to direct your attention better, which can be useful in each everyday situation.
Forest bathing is more than a classic forest walk, it is the key to restoring both your sense of self and understanding of your place in the world by immersing yourself in nature with all your senses. During this lazy stroll through flora and fauna, we observe, perceive and discover.
Anne-Marie Flammersfeld, will guide you slowly through the most beautiful forests of the Upper Engadin, you come to places off the beaten track and experience nature in a new way. It's about slowing down, pausing and reducing. New perspectives are developed and might change during this process.
The walks are suited for individuals, couples as well as small groups.
