Facilitator: Kian Seng, a certified Forest Bathing Guide from the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guide and Programs, USA
Forest Bathing or Shinrin-Yoku is the Japanese-inspired wellness practice of spending time in the forest for better health, happiness and a sense of calm. Research has proven that spending time around trees can reduce blood pressure, lower stress, boost energy and boost the immune system.
In the session, we will share about the scientific benefits of being in nature. There will be a variety of sensory invitations facilitated by Kian Seng and these invitations will take place in the different spaces at Kampung Kampus, each crafted to deepen our connections with the more than human world.
Facilitator: Sixian, a registered Yoga Teacher
As part of this series of invitations, we will also be drawing from the traditions of yoga to explore movement and facilitate an awareness of our relationship with nature, and ourselves. This gentle session set aside for us to tune in to our bodies will be guided by Sixian.
We’ll close the evening with some tea together in nature, while enjoying the beautiful sunset at the Kampung Kampus.
More information on the session will be emailed upon registration.
