Forest bathing emerged in Japan in the 1980s as a physiological and psychological exercise called shinrin-yoku (“taking in the forest atmosphere”). The purpose was twofold: to offer an eco-antidote to burnout and to inspire residents to reconnect with and protect the country’s forests. Now Aurora Procopio is bringing us to the forest with a recent series of experiences in the Furry Glen in the Phoenix Park. She leads a walk followed by a slow, gentle mindful movement practice. She will offer a number of ‘invitations’ which will help you to deeply connect with Nature. Just don’t confuse them with some of the traditional Furry Glen invitations.
Next outing Sunday September 25 from 11am-2pm.
