Forest Bathing Experience with Awaken to Nature

Sat Oct 9, 09:00 - Sat Oct 9, 12:30
Cape Town Forest


Would you like to feel CLEAR, CALM and CONNECTED?

Join us for a traditional forest bathing experience that gently guides you to a deeper connection with Nature and your own TRUE NATURE.



The term originated in Japan in the 1980's where it is known as shinrin-yoku, “shinrin” means forest and “yoku” means bath. Simply put, forest bathing is all about immersing oneself in the forest by taking in the atmosphere through the senses.

Forest bathing was introduced as an anti-dote to the tech-boom and the demand it put on the working population. Over the years research and science has confirmed the many benefits forest bathing offers. These include boosting the immune system and helping to reduce stress.


  • Feel relaxed.
  • Find clarity and focus.
  • Improve your well-being.
  • Learn new techniques to help manage your stress.
  • Practice mindfulness in nature.
  • Connect with your own true nature/ being/ spirit.
  • Deepen your connection with nature.
  • Meet like minded people.


Our intention is to guide you through a sequence of 'invitations' (natural mindfulness exercises) that awaken the senses to encourage a deeper connection and experience of the forest, nature and your TRUE NATURE.

We walk at a leisurely pace and cover a total distance of 3km's. The session should last between 3-4hrs. We spend more time sitting than standing, so is suitable for most levels of fitness.

After the 'invitations' we will enjoy a tea ceremony and take some time to reflect on the experience.

There is no right or wrong way to experience forest bathing.

No previous meditation experience required.

"This forest bathing outing was so much more than I expected. Mike & Jo took us on a wonderful, relaxed journey through the forest and, with thoughtful guidance, created a most memorable experience, inspiring me with ways to deepen my connection to Nature."

  • Alana

"True magic exists a step away from the hustle of the city. Mike & Jo are the perfect facilitators for uncovering it. Thank you for your subtle yet powerful guidance during my awakening to nature and all the beauty she holds.

Through this journey I was able to relax enough to unpack and polish some truly inspirational nuggets which I believe will have a positive impact on my life."

  • Kyle

"At first, I was apprehensive about a walk in the forest needing a guide, but this forest bathing session really surprised me. It was so lovely being properly guided on how to use our senses to get back in touch with our natural surroundings. I left the forest feeling calmer and clearer on some aspects I've been having trouble with. Go with an open mind and surrender to your surroundings. I am confident that anyone who goes on this expedition will benefit greatly from it. "

  • Lizzie

"Every part of our forest bathing session was well thought out by Mike & Jo and I highly recommend it.

A beautifully put together session that eases you gently and fully into the forest bathing experience. Perfectly placed guided meditations together with the naturally peaceful atmosphere of the forest left me feeling relaxed, refreshed, and revived. Thank you, Michael and Jo, for a wonderful few hours, the effects of which I am still feeling days after the event."

  • Bonny

"I am so grateful to Mike and Jo for offering the space and time to connect to myself and to nature. It is priceless to get in touch with oneself so this is an amazing opportunity that I would not usually have given myself in the mountains. I felt safe and in good hands. I managed to connect with my inner being to answer a couple questions I didn't even realise I was asking. It was really well organised and I highly recommend it to anyone who is incredibly busy or is in need of some connection with themselves, nature and others."

We look forward to sharing some 'Forest Time' with you soon.
