The Cedars

Forest Bathing at The Cedars

Stop to smell, touch and notice nature at The Cedars, Hahndorf.

Join Bronwyn Paynter of ‘Flourish, Nature-based OT’ at The Cedars Hahndorf for a forest bathing experience in the unique landscape that inspired one of Australia’s greatest landscape artists, Sir Hans Heysen.

If you find you are often rushed, stressed and overwhelmed with the pace of life this is the session for you!

Immerse yourself amongst the mighty gums and landscape that played muse to famous Australian artist Sir Hans Heysen in an unhurried forest bathing session. Forest bathing is not like hiking or bushwalking. Instead, it is an opportunity to ‘bathe’ or immerse ourselves in the natural environment.

This gently guided experience, led by Bronwyn Paynter of ‘Flourish, Nature-based OT’ will allow you to disconnect from technology and remind you that you are a part of nature, belong in nature and care for nature.

Sir Hans Heysen was deeply connected to the Australian landscape and this is an opportunity to see and understand the transformative nature of The Cedars for yourself whilst indulging in some self-care.

Research shows that Forest Bathing (also known as ‘shinrin yoku’, forest therapy or nature therapy) has benefits including reducing stress hormones in the body, improving mood and reducing worry.
