I only went out for a walk,

and finally concluded to stay out till sundown,

for going out, I found, was really going in.

Nature & Me - a new dawn

Forest Bathing Day is the brain child of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs, USA. 

On 8 Sep 2018, certified nature and forest therapy guides from around the world will be hosting forest bathing walks and events across the globe! Connecting with Earth, nature and other nature enthusiasts, no matter the distance. 

Forest Bathing Day @ SG 2018 emphasises the new dawn of our relationships with nature - an intentional connection with our urban forests, an immersive exploration of our land and ourselves, an informative discovery of our innate need to (re)connect with nature.

 

Programme

Curious about forest bathing and the research behind man's innate need for nature connections for well-being? Join us at our talks, film screening and go on a guided forest bathing walk! Click on the image to view the programme.

'Love thy nature'

An inaugural screening of this award-winning film in Singapore. "We’ve lost touch with nature. This disconnect hurts our health, dulls our spirit, and threatens our future. Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature is a cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. And it shows that a renewed connection with nature is key not only to our well-being, but also to solving our climate and environmental crises."

talks & speakers

What is forest bathing? How is it different from hiking and other nature walks? What does it mean to be biophilic? And how does nature impacts and influences our well-being? Join us, as certified forest therapy guides - You Min and Denise share on their knowledge, expertise and experience on forest bathing and biophilia.
