Join the EWT and spend a day, or part of the day, at Belfairs Woodlands celebrating our wonderful trees.
This day is split into three optional parts. Booking is essential but you can book for one, two or all three sections. Remember to bring refreshments if you are booking two or more sessions.
Join Tristan, the Belfairs Ranger, for a walk in the woods to explore some of the magnificent and interesting trees.
Join a two-hour “Shinrin-Yoko” or forest bathing taster session with Ruth from Forest Clouds Nature Therapy. This is a slow and sensory walk under the trees with various guided invitations to awaken the senses, connect with nature with mindfulness, meditation, breathing and walking exercises. You will be “bathing” in the atmosphere of the trees.
Research has proven that spending time around trees can reduce blood pressure, lower stress, boost energy and boost the immune system.
Please ensure you wear layers: this is a slow walk and you could get colder than on a normal paced walk. Waterproofs are also a good idea.
This session is for adults and older children only.
Help the EWT team dress the trees with special messages and end with a tree celebration. It will be getting dark, so please bring torches.
