The pandemic over the past year has left many people exhausted physically and mentally. It doesn’t only affect our body, but also our mind. We have put a lot of effort in disease prevention, and have also spent a lot of time worrying. On the other hand, the pandemic also gives us a chance to reflect on our previous lifestyle: Were we living a healthy and happy lifestyle Were our behaviors environmentally friendly?
In this online event, you would learn about Shinrin-Yoku, the practice of immersing our senses in nature with the intention of enhancing well-being. In a guided Forest Therapy experience, you will be led by an experienced guide through a series of connective invitations that slows you down, awakens your senses, opens your heart and supports you in building a deep, healing connection with nature. Amanda Yik, Founder of Shinrin Yoku Hong Kong would introduce Shinrin Yoku to you and guide you through the experience.
Hope you could reconnect with nature, accept the gift given of nature, and learn how to treat the environment well.
