What happens on the day?
Being outside is the safest way to gather together (research will show it is also good for us! ) In order to accommodate social distancing requirements of 2m, group size will be reduced. However, I am confident that the space in Beaulieu House Estate will accommodate these changes and your experience will not be compromised and that it will be possible to have a relaxed and restful time together.
Our welcoming area, walled garden and woodland entry points will have hand sanitising stations. The group will have exclusive use of all the designated areas in the walled garden and woodland area and have exclusive use of a private outdoor flush toilet that is well monitored and regularly cleaned.
Participants will be required to bring their own food and water to stay nourished during the experience.
Participants will need to bring their own cup to use during the tea ceremony. Boiled water from the kelly kettles will be provided for hot tea and all tea will be individually wrapped and sealed for use. (Please note no loose tea leaves or botanicals will be used during the COVID-19 pandemic)
Forest bathing has roots in mindfulness, especially mindful walking. It is also fused together by many sources such as neuroscience, poetry, art, mythology, storytelling, history, herbalism, outdoor therapy and the sense of being connected and part of nature feed into it at times.
