Farm 8 opens its gates to welcome you on a visit and walk that helps you open your senses, relax, meditate in Nature and experience the healing capacities that trees, plants, animal company and mitti have on us. We will follow simple invitations for our sense of touch, sound, vision and reconnect with the Nature that we are so intimately a part of.
This workshop is based on the concept of Forest Bathing – Shinrin-yoku – as it has developed in Japan. The idea behind Shinrin-yoku is that time spent in nature has proven to lower stress hormones, improve the immune system, lower blood pressure and decrease anxiety and depression among other benefits.
Today’s lives have become hectic, stressful, loud, and we often spend our days stuck in traffic or feeling under pressure. This workshop will gently guide you to let go of these feelings and impressions. Being in Nature will allow you to come back to the ease and openness that we can experience in a peaceful environment, and even to carry these positive feelings home into your daily life.
Date: 1st November
Time: 10 am – 11:30 pm
Cost: 250 Rs
Anna Zimmer is working with Edible Routes since February 2016. As the farm manager, she has experienced the farm at all times of the day, and all seasons of the year. She is deeply familiar with its spaces, animals, plants, and soil. Feeling its beautiful energy, and seeing how it affects visitors to the farm positively, she has taken inspiration from Forest Bathing walks with Nitin Das and the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides to conceptualise this journey for you.
