Heart of Nature – Skogsbad & meditation
Heart of Nature – Forest Hike & Meditation
– Forest Bathing – Meditation – Mindfulness – Mini-lecture – Community Gathering
Saturday 17 april
10.30-16.00 Tyresta National Park
Spring is here and our forests are full of gifts and beauty.
Join us for a heart awakening journey in nature – an 8km hike through ancient forests, lakes and sacred sites from Viking times.
We will meet and take a walk together in the beautiful nature of Tyresö National Park and open up to all its wonders and healing energies. Nature has the power to restore our health and wellbeing in multiple ways. It is a great source for instant regeneration. It brings peace, balance, harmony to our being, and is one of the fastest known ways to decrease and counter balance the negative impact of stress, thus having numerous beneficial effects on our overall health and inner harmony.
But there are ways and ways of being in nature. We can be like outsiders in nature, separated and absent. Or we can learn to be fully present in it by opening our senses more and more until we feel that we become like a part of nature. During this day we will aim to learn to surrender and rest in the embrace of nature.
There are many great scientific studies on the so called “forest bathing”, on how certain inner attitudes helps us to unlock the full benefit of being in nature. Together with meditation it becomes a unbeatable combo for healing & restoring harmony on all levels of our being. It is the ancient, most well-researched “medicine” we know of, perfectly safe & without side effects, something human beings have always resorted to when needing to relax, heal, get inspired or just for pure enjoyment.
So bring your tea, some good walking shoes (important!) and cozy warm clothes and join us for this heart-warming day in the magical Swedish forest!
