What Will You Learn?

Modern life is forever moving, unrelenting in its eagerness to push us forward onto the next thing and the next thing, and the thing after that. And so our minds are just as busy. Too infrequently do we stop and enjoy the stillness of a place.

Shinrin Yoku (also known as Forest Bathing) brings us back to nature. It takes us out of our busy lives and heals us - reconnecting us with our environments and ourselves. The Shinrin Yoku - Forest Bathing Diploma Course explains the theories, practices, and science behind forest bathing.

What is Shinrin Yoku and how we can use nature as therapy? The Shinrin Yoku - Forest Bathing Diploma Course begins by answering this very question, along with detailing the concept of ecotherapy and instilling an awareness of the power of trees, before moving on to explain the physical and mental benefits of Shinrin Yoku.

With a good theoretical understanding from which to grow, we venture on with some general guidelines to follow when forest bathing. You’ll gain insight on how to use various senses and share what you notice, how to give back to the forest, and ‘invitations’ - an important concept in Shinrin Yoku. You’ll learn how and why trees communicate with each other, and how we can send and receive nature’s messages.

When taking your first steps in Shinrin Yoku, preparation is important. The Shinrin Yoku - Forest Bathing Diploma Course explains how to find a forest bathing site, what to bring with you, and how to have a safe experience.

With preparations made, we walk through the process of carrying out Shinrin Yoku. You’ll discover all the key practices you need to understand to be able to carry it out effectively, including the concept of Yuugen and the threshold of connection.

We can’t always get to the forest but may still feel the need to enjoy the benefits of Shinrin Yoku forest bathing therapy. We look at how we can bring the forest indoors - exploring various plants and essential oils that can be used to do just that.

The Shinrin Yoku - Forest Bathing Diploma Course goes further than considering the theories and practices of Shinrin Yoku, as we dive into fascinating studies that show the true power of the forest and how it affects human beings in beneficial ways.

The course concludes with a consideration of the Shinrin Yoku community. We look at trails set up by this community, training as a guide, and Forest Bathing International.
