This appears to be a good course with the basics of forest bathing explained. Possibly too short for my preference.
A lovely short course, a great topic, simple but highly effective, and I will keep up the forest bathing. It's good for the soul and for lowering stress levels. I signed up for your newsletter, and I'll be looking into guides in my area. Thank you :-)

Yes, basic but good. Thank you
It is good to have the reinforcement of convenience, unchallenging terrain, feeling safe and less than a mile.
This course is a great introduction to forest bathing with good guidance and information!
I did enjoy this class; but most of what was taught I've done by reading a lot of the curriculum that is on Duncan's website.
I believe I was expecting more in depth teaching and training on Forest Bathing. This is good for starters, but I would give information for more advanced students that want more advanced certifications.
Beautiful presentation and inspiring
