Take yourself on a walk! A series of mindful encounters with nature
Warta River Trail at Cybina River – breadth and breath
8.06.2024, 10 am - noon

The third mindful walk in the open, a creative variation on the theme of forest bathing in urban conditions. Following our motto, we will look not only for the mindfulness and relaxation that come from conscious, multisensory experience of space offered by a walk down the wild bank of the Cybina. We will create our own boxes inspired by the relaxation form of the zen garden, or minimalist compositions from sand.

What are forest baths?

Shinrin-yoku is a form of mindful walking that aims to reduce stress through attentive contact with the forest environment. They are also possible in the urban context, though they will be slightly different from typical forest walks, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However, research confirms that even this form of practice is effective in reducing stress and has a positive effect on our wellbeing.

Moderator: Natalia Adamczyk – experienced culture animator, pedagogist, and educator. For the past 3 years certified by Forest Therapy Hub as a guide of forest baths and a member of the Polish Society of Forest Baths. Works under the aegis of Leśna Ścieżka/Forest Path.
