Shinrin-Yoku Sweden in Turkey
A wonderful return to lovely people at the NG Sapanca Spa Hotel. Last year Petra Ellora Cau Wetterholm from Shinrin-Yoku Sweden was invited to Turkey to introduce Forest Bathing, develop the Forest Trails and create Activity Packages for the guests, based on Forest Medicine. This year she was invited back to train 4 new staff members in the art of Forest Bathing Guiding for SPA. It was a few marvellous days of collaboration in Forest Bathing with very special events includin the guiding of 50 VIP Guests of the Hotel; actors, models, TV-celebrities and influencers.
The trails at NG Sapanca SPA Hotel are tended to in a most beautiful way and the general development and outreach is amazing. The introduction of Forest Bathing is needed in many cultures, contexts and levels of society. To share what we all have in common as living species and natural organisms on this Earth. Through this practise we reconnect to not only the living world around us, but to ourselves as well. The connection allows us to be in a reciprocal relationship with the living world, thus recognizing our shared life and interdependent nature. And this truly allows for happiness and wellbeing to arise.
