Forest Bathing in Amsterdamse Bos
Join certified forest therapy guide, Kimberly Knight for a walk at the Amsterdamse Bos to slow down, tune into your senses and reconnect with the natural of which we are a part. Light refreshments and a handmade, upcycled journal are included. These walks are always slow and easy-going, not a hike; not naturalist to A good portion of our time together will be in silence. This offers you the opportunity to experience the forest and to connect with others who want to experience nature fully and deeply. By choosing to stay away from friendly chit-chat and explore what it’s like to walk in nature without speaking, we have a chance to engage our senses more fully and to truly connect with the natural world. • Be Prepared Dress comfortably for walking on natural terrains. Bring a water bottle, but little else so you are unencumbered for your walk. Participants will be asked to silence and pocket their phones, so let folks know you will be unavailable for a couple of hours. All participants are personally responsible for their own fitness, safety and welfare and must be equipped accordingly. Minimum of two guests required for a walk to take place. If you would like to schedule a private walk, please send me a message to inquire about availability.
