Forest Therapy: Yasei Shinrin Yoku
The Wildcraft Forest School offers a unique approach to Shinrin Yoku, which is Japanese for "Forest Bathing" and means "taking in the forest atmosphere". Our approach to Shinrin Yoku incorporates wildcrafting, which includes a tangible understanding of the sentient forest. Our “Yasei Shinrin Yoku” introduces participants to the many spirit guides that dwell in the forest. Through the use of forest-based teas and essences we will explore the subconscious energies that connect the forest with the most ancient part of our soul.
Please register with us for this six-month teachers training program, which includes seven sections that are delivered through online components that are combined with outdoor fieldwork as well as guided interactions and challenges within the forest. During the course you will be assigned a Wild Skills Guide who will provide you with online and phone support in an effort to help you become strengthened as a Yasei Shinrin Yoku guide, and able to explore and practice the realm of Deep Forest Therapy.
This certification course is available for everyone and it can also be applied to the Wildcrafting Bioregional Studies Certificate (WBSC) and the Wildcraft Practitioners Diploma (WPD) for Master Wildcrafters.
