Your Nature Connection Guide

What is Forest Bathing?

Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) is a mindfulness practice in nature that originated in Japan and now it has arrived in county Wicklow, Ireland.

The name refers to bathing yourself in the forest atmosphere through all of your senses. So don't worry, you don’t have to go into water to forest bathe! Instead, you focus on what you can see, hear, smell, touch and taste. It's all about slowing down, getting out of your head and into your body. As a forest bathing guide, I will take you on a short and slow walk to help you to connect with nature and yourself. After a forest bathing walk you will feel more relaxed, less stressed and recharged. Scientific studies show that forest bathing has lots of health benefits. Read more...

Founder of Forest Bathing Wicklow: Cathelijne de Wit
Forest bathing guide Cathelijne (or Cat for short) is originally from the Netherlands. She moved to county Wicklow, Ireland in 2015 because she fell in love with the natural landscape of the emerald isle. After working as a certified national tour guide for more than seven years, Cat trained as a forest bathing guide in 2021 to share the benefits she experienced in nature with others. Her way of guiding is very down to earth and accessible for everyone. She will create a safe space in the forest and helps you to be mindful and connect with nature and yourself in a fun way. Read more...
