About this event
Guided gentle walks exploring the practice of Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) in the beautiful woods or gardens of the Dartington estate with Emma Capper, nature and forest therapy guide.
Shinrin-yoku is a well known preventative health practice in Japan, helping people deal with stress from modern day pace of life. Find out more here.
These walks provide a wonderful opportunity to slow down and through a carefully crafted series of invitations, connect through all your senses to the natural world. Each walk concludes with a special tea ceremony.
Emma has been guiding walks and holding workshops for several years. Find out more about her journey as an artist and guide here.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.Find out more about what we do
