Event in English - Evento in inglese con traduzione sintetica in italiano in caso di necessità
Two renowned professionals are coming from Slovenia specifically to guide this experience.
Forest Therapy is perfect for the modern human who wants to reduce stress, strengthen resistance and the immune system, achieve well-being, satisfaction and deepen the feeling of connection with nature. A practice that brings us into contact with the natural environment and with ourselves.
Through guided forest therapy, participants in a natural environment can more easily relax, slow down, leave the framework of society and enter the world of nature. Through the invitations given by the forest therapy guide, step by step the participants connect with their sensory perceptions and gradually allow more and more of nature to enter their body and the space of their perception.
The music from the Serbian Holy Mountain Hilandar will be the connective tissue of this workshop.
We will practice idleness, walla massage, church bells sound therapy with affirmations, coloring books with motifs from Pirot carpets, ethno dance with grounding in woolen stockings, laughter yoga circle, Jew's harp music during movement from the world of fairy tales to the tame world, and Balkan SPA tea ceremony with Turkish delight, dried plums, and plum brandy Nostalgia.
The effects of a guided Forest Therapy are supported by numerous researches, studies and evidence and work perfectly on the psychological and physical level of the body.
