Banyen's Description: 

Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. In Japan it is called "shinrin yoku," which translates to "forest bathing." Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition.

Forest bathing is a gentle, meditative practice of connecting with nature. Simply being present, with all of our senses, in a forest or other wild area, can produce mental, emotional, and physical health benefits. It is a simple, accessible antidote to our nature-starved lives and can inspire us to become advocates for healing our relationships with the more-than-human world. This book is both an invitation to take up the practice of forest bathing and an inspiration to connect with nature as a way to help heal both planet and human.

Your senses bring you into the present moment, where you can take in all the forest has to offer, welcoming it, letting it settle inside you

 

Forest bathing is not the same thing as hiking. The destination in forest bathing is “here” not “there.” The pace is slow. The focus is on connection and relationship… Most of us have never learned the art of stillness in nature.

In A Little Book of Forest Bathing, Amos Clifford draws on four decades of wilderness experience to introduce readers to the medicine of being in the forest. Learn about the roots of the practice, the significance of the forest environment, how to deepen your relationship to nature, and how to begin a practice of your own. Practical matters and practicing in urban and suburban environments are also included.
