Yasei Shinrin Yoku
“Wild Forest Bathing
in a Sanctuary Forest”

When we invest in the Forest and the Earth so that she remains strong and healthy then she will invest in us.

The Wildcraft Forest offers a unique approach to Shinrin Yoku which is Japanese for "Forest Bathing" and means "taking in the forest atmosphere". We offer Yasei Shinrin Yoku, which incorporates wildcrafting, and includes a tangible understanding of the sentient forest. Participants are introduced to the many spirit guides that dwell in the forest. Through the use of forest-based teas we will explore the subconscious energies that connect the forest with the most ancient part of our soul.

Each session takes place within the gentle terrain of one of our Yasei Sanctuary Forests. There are meditation platforms and covered areas where presentations and discussions take place. To learn more about the Wildcraft Forest click here.

A typical day will travel participants in a slow quiet walk through the forest. Participants will stop and perform certain exercises and meditations linked to body, mind and spirit. The day will include a discussion within a sacred circle as well as a tea tasting and essential oil experience linked to the primary human “senses”. You can join us for treatment sessions and forest retreats and you can also become a member, which will allow you to drop in and camp in the forest.

We offer additional services such as bodywork, ancestral mapping and energy work.

Explore various treatment services that we offer by appointment.

From anywhere in the world you can participate in our Yasei Shinrin Yoku challenges which explore the healing elements of the forest; outdoor fitness methods; relaxation techniques and detox methods.
