Shinrin Yoku – The Japanese way of Forest Bathing

Simply being present in the nature with senses fully alive can have remarkable healing effects. Spending time with nature can also awaken our latent and profound connection to all living things. Nature and Forest Therapy has its roots from Japan where it’s called Shinrin Yoku which literally means Forest Bathing. It is a gentle meditative approach to being with nature and an antidote to our nature starved modern lives that can heal our relationship with nature and all living things.
