Spain / Andalusia
We will approach the teachings of Dr. Quing Li on the practice of shinrin-yoku (forest bath) and enjoy its benefits on health and well-being. The environment of the Vallée du Génal is a true “Forest of forests” because it is characterized by a remarkable forest diversity. On our visit we will walk among cork oaks, hawk oaks and chestnut trees and enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.
We will meet in the heart of the Genal Valley and follow a path through the forest that lead us to small and pleasant areas where to practice relaxation and chi-kung sessions. The way itself will help us to perform the forest bathing.
The hike will end at the starting point, with the body and mind much more relaxed, connected with nature and ready for a sustainable and ecological meal.
Comfortable clothes adapted to the weather are recommended. Good shoes for walking on dirt roads and paths. Whoever sees it necessary can bring a mat or cushion to sit on the forest floor.
Organic and seasonal products, most of them of km 0, according to sustainability and eco-consumption. We will collaborate with the local economy and the maintenance of the rural populations of the Genal Valley.
