Forest & Nature Bathing Sussex

Forest & Nature Bathing Sussex


Hi there, I just discovered the forest bathing event tomorrow in Lewes and would be very happy to come along. Is that going ahead and if yes, could I still join ? I am based in Eastbourne, so, without a car, hence, how could I come to the meeting point ? Hope to hear back from you soon, best Rebecca

Woodland Wellbeing with Amanda. Nature-filled, sensory journeys through the woods, meadows and beyond Forest & Nature Bathing Sussex create forest and nature immersions in the beautiful Sussex woods, meadows and beyond.

WHAT IS FOREST BATHING? Forest Bathing is spending time amongst trees with the aim of reducing stress and enhancing a sense of wellbeing. At Forest & Nature Bathing Sussex, we like to blend and balance the experience of being in the trees with spending time under an open, a clear or dramatic sky or a meadow or sand dunes or river and beyondโ€ฆ

I hope to start up regular public sessions again here soon.

Happy Monday to you all ๐ŸŒท


I love partnering with and being guided by nature.

Shinrin Yoku is such a powerful yet gentle experience that is hard to put into words. I alone receive a gift every time I take a group into Sheffield Park. Today our group were seated in the woods at the base of a group of trees and were unable to move. We stayed, literally rooted, held captive by the beauty and the sensesโ€ฆ visited in our stillness by our feathered friends โค๏ธ

The next Forest Bathing events at Sheffield Park Gardens are in June!

Hope to see you there:

The next Forest Bathing event at Sheffield Park and Garden NT is on Saturday 4th June from 9am - 11am

Book here:


Everybody needs nature. Todayโ€™s busy lives can have significant impact on our mental and physical wellbeing and many of us instinctively head outside as a way to unwind and feel refreshed. But how often do we take the time to stop, focus our attention on the smaller details and really connect with the outdoor places we love?

'Forest Bathing' is a direct translation of the Japanese shinrin-yoku, and despite what the name suggests, it is not water bathing but bathing in the beauty and restorative powers of nature. Developed in Japan, the concept of this relaxation practice is very simple: to slow down and immerse yourself in the forest atmosphere in order to improve wellbeing.

There are still spaces left for this weekend's Forest Bathing session at Sheffield Park on Sunday 8th May!

What are your plans this Easter weekend?

Whatever you do, I hope you make nature and the outdoors a part of it. There is so much wisdom and knowledge we can gain from surrounding ourselves with nature.

Listening to the bird song, smelling the blooming flowers and feeling the spring sunshine on your cheeks. It's a beautiful time of the year reminding us of new beginnings and opportunities.

Enjoy your long weekend ๐Ÿฃ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿฐ

Wow, what can I say - the first Forest Bathing event at Sheffield Park was wonderful! ๐ŸŒณ

Our lovely group shared a magical morning at Sheffield Park and Gardens on Saturday. We were blessed to explore the whole of the gardens and woods to ourselves.

We walked alongside nature as it gently woke to the day and revealed its beauty. We too, along with the blossoms, felt we were emerging from winter and opening up and out into spring. It was truly an honour to take part in the beauty of Sheffield parkโ€™s incredible gardens and mystical woodlands. ๐ŸŒท


There's still time to book a Forest Bathing session at Sheffield Park & Gardens

Feedback like this is what makes my work so special. I love taking people into nature and holding space for them to experience the beauty all around us. ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒป

"This was such a special outdoor experience. Using the whole natural environment to wake up our green selves and connect with all growing and moving things in the forest and woodlands.

Amanda took us through a number of thoughtful meditations which brought close to the trees in mind and body, opening up new thought patterns and ideas. We collected tokens from the forest floor or around and used them to connect with the trees. We watched for and found all types of fauna, as we stayed quiet and close to several magical places.

Amanda lead us gently and happily to our own ideas and thoughts and I am quite sure I achieved some personal growth from my experience Forest Bathing at Farley's. It was well organised and resourced. I would happily attend another workshop like this."

If you would like to join one of my upcoming events at Farleys House and Gallery, you can book here:


Step off the world and into the trees... Experience freedom, magic and the restorative touch of nature as I take you on a sensual, meditative and mindful journey into the beautiful Sussex woods, meadows and beyond. ๐ŸŒณ

I will be sharing my upcoming workshops and announcing new collaborations very soon, so watch this space! ๐ŸŒท
