Become a Forest Bathing practitioner

How would you like to train as a Forest Bathing practitioner?

Forest Bathing simply means immersing yourself in a forest setting, simply being present in the natural world. It is a wonderful way to calm our senses in a busy world. It reconnects us to the natural world through trees and woodlands and imparts us with a profound sense of peace. Do you have a passion to bring this sense of peace to others in the tranquillity of The National Forest? Can you see how this could be a developing programme of activity that would generate income?

Timber Festival and the National Forest Company are joining forces to provide a training bursary of up to £2,500 for one special person to train as a Forest Bathing Practitioner and develop their enterprising practice in The National Forest with local support to help you get going.  The winner of the bursary will be expected to deliver a minimum of 20 Forest Bathing Sessions each for up to 4 people within the National Forest.
