Forest bathing at Pratizzano
Saturday, 27 August, 2022 / 14:30 - 17:30 UTC+1
The second seasonal forest bathing appointment in the Appennino tosco-emiliano National Park
Hut Pratizzano will be our meeting point and base for this experience. It is an accessible and quiet place, placed at the margin of a grassy plateau, surrounded by fir and pine plantations and natural beech forests. We will develop our activities in these environments, also in relation to the conditions of the moments and the necessary seek for intimacy. We will therefore displace a bit away from the hut, but anyway for shirt distance and on an itinerary trail suitable for all.
Meeting. At hut Pratizzano, 3.30 p.m., Saturday, August 27, 2022
What to bring. Practical and informal clothes, adequate to temperature and weather conditions. The activity will be rather static, so stay warm. Small backpack or bag, with your personal belongings; avoid bulky things, that may be an obstacle. You can bring a small mat or pillow to sit on the ground, but not bug mats, that can be uncomfortable to hold. Insect repellant. We may enter inside a true forest, although not far from the main trail. So the contact with plants will be possible and, for the ones who will go deeper inside the forest, it will be possible to encounter rough terrain, fallen branches and steeper and slippery stretches.
For a more complete stay. All of us have lot of commitments and this specific period also leave us with lot of doubts. The places where we will go are however waiting for you and would be glad to embrace you also beyond this experience, to establish a lasting alliance. So, within your availability, try not to be hurried, and stay longer, maybe to eat sleep or rest, in some of the friend structures of this experience, listed at the bottom of this post.
