‘Shinrin-Yoku’ – FOREST BATHING EXPERIENCE – Lost Paradise



Workshop Description:

Come and learn the wonder-ful benefits of Shinrin-Yoku. Founded in Japan in the 1980’s Shinrin-Yoku, is an experience of deep self-care and brings you into like minded community.  Shamanic Medicine teaches us we are in nature and nature is in us. Enjoy discovering nature as Sherynne gently guides you along this experience. Feel refreshed after taking in the natural emissions of the forest through the lungs and the skin. Have a giggle as you learn how to hug a tree and benefit from ‘Earthing’.  When forest bathing your overall physical and mental health benefits as your brain produces happy hormones, as blood pumps oxygen and nutrients through your system to all the cells from the tips of your toes to your fingertips and nose and as the lymphatic system is activated through movement.

Wear light, comfortable clothing and flat walking shoes to ensure you are engaging the feet in this activity. Bring along your own water for hydration.

  • “I had such an incredible time at Lost Paradise – it was a wonderfully unique experience. Thanks again for the opportunity to attend Lost Paradise – it was one of the best festivals I’ve attended in Australia and a fabulous start to the year.”

    Sophie Dellagiacoma – Australian Traveller Magazine

  • “I had such a good time at Lost Paradise! It’s one of the coolest festivals I’ve been to. I loved playing the Lost Disco stage, the atmosphere was wicked, the decoration was class and the lit up signs the crowd brought with them, added to it too.

    After my set I went on the dancefloor with a few of my mates and saw the new year in listening to Jackmaster & Jasper James, was a memorable new year!”

    – Patrick Topping
  • “Lost Paradise was a totally unique festival, nothing like it in Australia. Thank you to everyone who made it such a beautiful place.”

  • “The thing that really makes this festival shine is without a doubt the sheer variety of acts in that world class lineup. Dense, ambitious, and not afraid to throw in a few curve balls, Lost Paradise is much more than your average doof, but a playground for all, no matter what your age or musical alignment.”

  • “After Boomtown in England this is definitely the second festival with the craziest stuff”

    – M.I.A.
  • “One of the most magical spots we’ve ever played in Oz and a night complimented by generous staff and hospitality that really looked after us. A show we’ll never forget”

  • “My favourite view from stage in the world. Doof sticks and the Australian bush, insane energy.”
    – Willaris. K
  • “Re-awaken your sense of wanderlust and adventure with the festival’s secret hideaways, glittering late night discos, and inspirational art and performance”

    No1 NYE 2017/8 Event in the World – Buzzfeed
  • As 2018 became 2019, I found myself feeling sorry for all my Sydney pals couped up in clubs and bad house parties. But also, not really. When you’ve got a festival like Lost Paradise waiting for you just down the road, why on earth would you spend your New Year’s anywhere else?”

    – Hhhappy – Bill Robinson
  • “A picturesque setting in Glenworth Valley forest, a flowing river that hugged the venue and camping grounds, and one of the most characterfully constructed settings of any festival this side of the Pacific, Lost Paradise curates its New Year celebrations in the same way it curates its lineup: with weird and wonderful indulgence.”
