What is Forest Bathing?

The term Forest Bathing was originally described by Dr Qing Li, Associate Professor at Nippon Medical School, Japan.  Dr Li studied how trees and forests can positively affect human health.  

As a result of Dr Li’s work, many more studies have been undertaken by the scientific community around the world. Each study has proven the positive value of spending time amongst the trees, for mental and physical health and wellbeing.

With over half the world’s population living in cities, humans are only just surviving the pressures of modern life, with noise and artificial light all around.

“Anthea has an amazing empathy with all living things. Her understanding of Mother Earth and all her inhabitants is amazing! Be open and you won’t regret it”

– Sue Barnes

1-2-1 Session

“A truly wonderful afternoon spent in the forest with Anthea.  It is a fantastic way to relax and connect with all of nature’s beauties.

Anthea will take it at your own pace and with whatever you feel comfortable with.  I came away feeling relaxed and peaceful.

I highly recommend Forest Bathing.”

 M. Bracegirdle

Family Session

“Anthea has an incredible intuition and empathy; she has a peace that radiates out! My daughter (5yrs) and I spent the most magical afternoon with Anthea exploring an enchanted forest, beautiful Oaks and faeries.

My daughter was completely entranced and talks about the afternoon with such joy.  A truly wonderful afternoon leaving

us with memories that will last a long time. (It was my second experience with Anthea, the first being a session shared with a friend, again an incredible afternoon filled with learning, laughter, revelations and peace).”

 G&A

Group Session

“First time Forest Bathing, I was a little unsure what to expect.  The whole experience started working for me as soon as I entered the forest.

If you’ve never been forest bathing before, there is nothing to fear.  I have noticed changes in myself – feeling more positive and not so fatigued – even sleeping through the night for the first time in three years!”

 M. Burrows

Team Building

“I took my team on a forest bathing session yesterday.  We had an amazing experience with Anthea.

We laughed, we cried, we connected on a deep level.  We were nurtured by both Anthea the forest and one another.

I totally recommend this for team building; as it opens people up, to talk honestly and speak the truth about now and the future.”

Meditation is a wonderful journey to embark upon… it is a gently guided adventure, through Nature, to your Self, where peace and calm reside

Sound healing can ‘still the mind’ before your forest bathing encounter; or be a celebration of thanks to the forest, to Nature 

Creativity is the opportunity to express and record what you have experienced and encountered amongst the trees

Silence is a friend you invite to sit with you. Without judgment, it can bring comfort.  Silence can lead you to your own path, to You

How it all started…

Hello, my name is Anthea Payne

Having lived and worked all over the world, from New York City to the Mongolian Steppe, the high Andes to the open seas.  No matter where I have found myself, I have always found my place in Nature.

Nature would never fail me if I was feeling lost or low.  It would show me sunlight glowing through a leaf, or sparkling off water.

I would hear birdsong or the gentle lapping of waves.  Each tiny moment – a small moment of joy –  just enough to lift the spirits and reassure me that we are all connected in Nature.

Working as an Energy Healer for humans and animals, I began to notice a deepening affinity with the plant world too.

Increasingly, I could recognise the roles of individual trees within their particular community, and their relationship to the other trees around them.

I appreciated more deeply that trees & plants are living, breathing, sentient beings, that deserve our respect and protection.  Especially as they breathe-in our carbon dioxide and breathe-out the oxygen we need to survive.

I noticed how my own health improved after being with the trees; I had an increased sense of well being and I could breathe more deeply, and think more clearly.  I decided to learn more and expand my experiences by studying Forest Bathing.

It was during my training, in one specific forest meditation, that an important message was sent to me from the trees.

That message led me on this mission, to set-up Forest Bathing Isle of Wight

We are ALL connected in Nature. 

The ancient trees are the Wise Knowledge Keepers and the Oxygen Givers We ALL need to survive!

Enter the Labyrinth

As the Forest leads you on a journey of self-discovery, it can also lead you to the beach – to walk a Labyrinth.

Entering the Labyrinth, you enter a sacred space and embark upon a personal journey of self-discovery.

Working with this most ancient and powerful symbol of wisdom, you travel a path of self-enlightenment.

Leaving the Labyrinth, you leave with a new thread of inner wisdom, which will positively impact your life.

This is a wonderfully positive and profound, facilitated healing journey.

The Mission of Forest Bathing Isle of Wight:

Boost physical and mental health and wellbeing

by connecting humans with the Healing power of Nature.

Building resilience, community and connection within Nature

for the health and wellbeing of every species on our planet.
