About this Event

Forest bathing and haiku go together like sunlight and daytime. The same concepts apply to both. Come see how to use haiku to enrich your nature experience. Join The Forest Bathing Circle on the International Day of the Haiku and come to the Amsterdamse Bos for a guided forest bathing experience and writing of you own haikus.

The writing of Haiku in a nature setting can help in increasing your creativity and at the same time increasing sensitivity to the environment. On this forest bath we will practice this art form as a mindful and meditative exercise. Haiku will help promote mental and emotional wellbeing, by identifying feelings and emotions and expressing them through your creative writing.

Meetingpoint: Amsterdamse Bos - Parkeerplaats Bosrandweg

Time: 10:00 - 13:00

Investment: 35 euros

Fee included guidance of FTI certified forest bathing guide, tea and snack at the end of the experience. Fee does not include transportation to the Amsterdamse Bos.

For whom?

Forest bathing is for everyone. You don’t need special skills or cloths, only an open mind and the will to connect consciously to the natural elements. We won’t walk much during a forest bath, it’s more about relaxation than about making an effort. It’s about being with the forest instead of in the forest. Also, it’s not necessary to be a poet or know how to write poems. Experimenting with writing haikus during this forest bath is more an exercise to connect even deeper with the nature and surroundings.

- For this forest bath, participants must be 12 years or older.

- We don’t allow dogs to walk with us.

- A maximum of 12 people will join this forest bath. We need a minimum of 6 people for the walk. In case less than 6 people join, the event will be cancelled and the fee reimbursed.

Please note that this forest bath will be guided in English.

What to expect?

This guided forest bath takes about 3 hours, in which we will slow down, be silent most of the time and open our senses to experience nature and the forest. The certified guide will help you in this through the use of certain invitations that will help you to get out of your mind and connect to your body and sense. If you want, you can share your experiences in a circle, but you don’t have to if you want to stay quiet. On this forest bath we will practice this art form as a mindful and meditative exercise. Haiku will help promote mental and emotional wellbeing, by identifying feelings and emotions and expressing them through your creative writing. At the end of the bath we will have some tea and snacks.
