11am Discover forest bathing. Forest bathing is not just for the wilderness-lover; the practice can be as simple as walking in any natural environment and consciously connecting with what’s around you. The term emerged in Japan in the 1980s as a physiological and psychological exercise called shinrin-yoku (“forest bathing” or “taking in the forest atmosphere”). The Japanese quickly embraced this form of ecotherapy to counteract their fast-paced, work-obsessed urban existence. Set on 1,000 acres in a rural paradise, barranca is framed by amazing sandstone escarpments that enclose a lush river valley, rich and diverse with wildlife and glorious temperate rainforests, making it perfect for forest bathing.
