Deep in the trees: forest bathing with Elke Seidel
Their feet roll cautiously across the mossy forest floor. They can feel the tree roots, a twig cracks softly. Far above, a chaffinch is singing its song. For about 20 minutes, the participants move through the forest at snail’s pace. They take their time and look out for every little detail. This walking meditation is part of the three-hour forest bathing walk run by IGM health coach Elke Seidel as an extra service offered by the Bad Alexandersbad Health Centre in the Fichtel Mountain Nature Reserve.
