Event Details

Waldbaden is a holistic health concept from Japan, where it is known by the term Shinrin Yoku. Withal humans are actively involved in the forest ecosystem. Body, soul and spirit interact with the forest atmosphere. The pure, dust-free air, the ethereal fragrances of the plants, the tranquility and the rhythm of nature can positively influence the human organism and the soul. We can feel liveliness and lightness. That’s neither coincidence nor magic. For thousands of generations, the “outside” was the home of the people. Connected, rooted and skillfully we lived in the wild nature and are basically perfectly adapted to their conditions. Against this background, nature-based therapy methods such as forest, garden and landscape therapy are becoming increasingly important.

Forest therapists and forest bathing guides are trained to accompany individuals and groups in the forest so that its health-promoting effect can develop the best possible. Forest bathing can: reduce stress, refresh, slow down, strengthen the immune system, increase well-being, stimulate balance and motor skills, give strength, train mindfulness, bring joy of life and ease, promote nature connection, brain drain, give space to emotions, greening the soul, let creativity flow – and much more.

Course content
When bathing in the forest, we are physically and mentally active without being exhausted. Every day we go on a leisurely hike. On the way we take a lot of time to stay in the countryside. For example, we dive into light larch forests, spruce forests and pine forests. On the way there are invitations to playful tasks, to sensory perception, to nature observations, to creative activities. The exchange in the group about the experienced and found is part of it – as well as a picnic together. Deceleration is guaranteed. Forest bathing is to be understood as health-promoting and preventive. It does not replace a medical treatment.

Target group
All those who want to recharge their batteries in the beautiful nature of the Upper Engadine. Prerequisite is the curiosity and willingness to perceive our natural environment from quite different perspectives and to wake all senses.

Andrea Kippe (Jg. 1967)
In 2018, she acquired the certificate for “Forest Therapy and Health Counseling in the Integrative Procedure®” at the European Academy for Biopsychosocial Health and Creativity Promotion. She also works as a wilderness educator and journalist and is co-author of the Rotpunkt hiking guide “Wanderwelt Val Müstair”. Leading to my work are the natural cycles of life and the attitude that we humans are just as much a part of nature as all other living things. Making new, lasting connections with our natural environment means for me a privilege and a wonderful task, to which I am happy to dedicate myself.
