“This invitation is called: ‘Walking on this earth’. There are many beings walking on this earth together with us, all on their own unique journey. Find a track and go explore it with all your senses. I wonder where it is taking you?”
Have fun and if you like, please do share what you are noticing?
During a shinrin-yoku walk, the guide invites the participants to take part in several ‘invitations’: voluntary activities suiting the very moment and place. An invitation serves to connect participants with nature, themselves and each other.
This was the first invitation I crafted during my training to become an ANFT-certified shinrin-yoku guide, and was inspired by a 5-years-old.
