Description

"A beautiful and inspiring guide inviting us to seek out the trees and let the healing happen, both for us and for our beleaguered ecosystems. Grab this book and head outside" -Florence Williams, author of The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative

Simply being present in the natural world - with all our senses fully alive - can have a remarkably healing effect. It can also awaken in us our latent but profound connection with all living things. This is "forest bathing," a practice inspired by the Japanese tradition of shinrin-yoku. It is a gentle, meditative approach to being with nature and an antidote to our nature-starved lives that can heal our relationship with the more-than-human world.

In Your Guide to Forest Bathing you'll discover a path--along with specific activities presented by Amos Clifford, one of the world's most experienced forest bathing experts--that you can use to begin a practice of your own. Whether you're in a forest or woodland, public park, or just your own backyard, this book will be your personal guide as you explore the natural world in a way you may have never thought possible.
