Rest, reset, rejuvenate and give a green booster to your energy.
This is a great chance for you to experience the practice of Shinrin-yoku (Forest bathing), a Japanese way of "immersion in nature".
You will spend time in the tranquil, beautiful natural envirohment of Mount Shoenstatt in Mulgoa,
only one hour drive from Sydney.
There has never been a better time to explore new wellbeing opportunities as we embrace the benefits of slowing down and putting our health first. Forest bathing is a wonderful way to recharge, connect with nature and regenerate our souls as the practice involves a series of guided methods to help us relax, become more present and connect with the natural world.
The Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku—literally translated as “forest bathing”—is based on a simple premise: immerse yourself in the forest, absorb its sights, sounds, and smells, and you will reap numerous psychological and physiological benefits.
