Forest Bathing

Planet earth is extraordinary, and yet we as a species are facing a climate change crisis like no other. The speed at which our beautiful, temporary home is being affected is a harsh reality that we must face and change together. There is enormous pressure on this generation to slow down climate change, and together through living more sustainable lives, and respecting nature in every way possible, we just may be able to push that boulder up the hill and decelerate the speed at which global warming is affecting each one of us.

Right beside us in the Ben Mhor Hotel is Cairngorms National Park, is unquestionably one of the most exquisite places on earth. So much so, that people are coming from near and far to partake in what is known as “Forest Bathing” or “Shinrin-oku”in Asia. This practice allows you to fully immerse yourself into the atmosphere of nature, in silence. And, it is available for you to book when you come and visit us.

A session of forest bathing lasts about 2 hours, and you will leave, refreshed, relaxed and invigorated.  Sometimes we all need to escape from technology, from each other, from the stresses of everyday life and just enjoy the moment. To us this sounds like an amazing way of protecting what’s near and dear to us, nature, plant life and our planet. They say, (whoever they are!) you don’t appreciate what you have until it’s gone. So, let’s appreciate the world around us, Scotland, Cairngorms National Park and the Ben Mhor Hotel 😊
