Forest Bathing – an activity that gives you the opportunity to really in depth, with all your senses install yourself in Kolarbyn and deepen your nature experience.
Just putting your feet in the wonderful Kolarbyn allows you to log out of everyday life’s demands and to experience a peace of mind. To attend a guided Forest Bath is a great oppurtunity to take it one step further to really ground yourself and to deepen your experience and to connect with the beautiful nature around Kolarbyn.
What is a Forest Bath? We are not going to swim in the lake (you can do that before or after) and we will not go far. We will slowly, mostly in silence wander into the woods next to Kolarbyn. Through simple guided exercises we will then explore the forest with the help of our different senses – it is our senses that bathes in the atmosphere of the forest.
The focus is not on achievement, but the whole thing is about a relaxing context, where we in a different, present and curious way explores the forest and nature.
Research around the world has shown that guided Forest Baths have a lot of positive effects on our well-being – so, come along for the beneficial moment in the forest where you also get tools home in everyday life and maybe some new insights!
We gather outside the reception about ten minutes before the scheduled time. Clothing according to the weather and take something warm if it is cold because we will go slowly and have some meditative moments in stillness. We recommend something to sit/lie on and preferably a little mosquito repellent and water if you get thirsty.
