The Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku
Forest Bathing is spending time in a forest to reduce stress and feel a sense of wellbeing. It originated in Japan, where it is called shinrin-yoku, and it is now one of the cornerstones of Japanese healthcare.
Forest Bathing draws on the therapeutic powers of nature and connects people with the natural environment. With guidance, you can learn to make the experience truly immersive and bring all your senses into play, leaving you feeling calmer and happier. It sounds like an alternative therapy and yet, in many ways, it is simply a return to our original state of being.
