Our Zen Walk is better than a spa treatment to relax and rigenerate body and soul. Along an easy trail immersed in the woods, you will rediscover your deep bond with Nature through very simple techniques of Forest Bathing and Mindfulness.
Sensations, emotions and nature knowledge are the ingredients of this unique experience that will make you feel the innate connexion between human and nature as a never-ending spring of marvel and wellbeing.
At the end of the walk, we will share local plants herb-tea and healthy tasty biscuits made with ancient Sicilian wheat varieties.
What is Forest Bathing?
Forest Bathing uses immersions in the woods to improve physical and mental wellbeing. It comes from Japan where it is called Shinrin-Yoku and has been practiced as preventive medecine since the 80’s.
Many studies show that Forest Bathing has benefical effects on the immune system, stress, sleep quality, blood pressure, cardiac rythm and more.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness used the 5 senses to fully live/feel/sense the present moment and reach a state of wellbeing.
You will meet your guide in Castelbuono at 8.30 am (we start early to enjoy the quietness of the woods at its utmost).
If you aren’t sure where this is, don’t worry, as you will be provided with a map indicating the meeting point when you book. You can always contact us to ask for more information. Each guest will then reach the starting point of the trail in their own vehicle.
The place of the activity might vary to make sure it takes place in the best conditions.
