You’ll meet your experienced Forest Minds guide at Cottonwood Glen picnic area before setting off into the bush. Along the way, you’ll take part in a series of guided activities aimed at helping you lower your stress levels. These gentle exercises are inspired by Japanese forest bathing called ‘Shinrin-yoku’.
