ZEN GUIDING COURSES AND EXPERIENCES
Wildside Magazine|January 2020
Reconnect with your ecological self and benefit from nature’s own therapy

There is now proof based on 30 years of scientific research that we as human beings benefit both physically and mentally by spending time out in nature. Our exposure to certain chemicals given off by trees and soil (Forest Bathing) and the positive benefits of negative ions produced by the ocean waves and waterfalls have long-lasting health benefits for us. ZenGuiding conducts various courses and programmes that not only increases your knowledge of nature but provides you with experiences that are good for your immune system and your psychological wellbeing.
