Forest Bathing is the practice of spending time in nature for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness. Through a guided experience at HKUST China Garden (near senior staff quarter), you will be led by a trained guide Amanda through a series of connective invitations that slows you down, awakens your senses, and supports you in building a deep, healing connection with nature. Science has shown that regular forest bathing over a period of time can bring us a range of benefits, such as reduced blood pressure, pulse rates, blood sugar , stress hormones levels, and strengthened immune systems and enhanced mood. Being in nature in a healing way is congenial to opening up fresh insights and expanding our perspectives. The opportunity for quiet reflection supports you in gaining a better understanding of yourself and your relationship with others.
Target participants: 15 HKUST students, staff or residents who are aged 16 or above
